Students – Shortly after moving to Canvas, faculty asked if there was a way to prevent students from seeing courses once the semester had ended. Recently the Faculty Senate asked that students not have access to their Canvas courses once the semester has ended. At the time of both requests this was not possible. Back in April of 2015, Instructure (the company that makes Canvas) added functionality that allowed NMSU the ability to restrict students from viewing courses after the end date of the course. This functionality was enabled at that time.
Faculty – The day after grades are made available to students in myNMSU, your Canvas courses are put into a read-only mode and automatically moved to the Past Enrollments area of your Courses page. To access this area of Canvas, move your mouse over the Course (or Courses & Groups) menu and click on the View All or Customize link. On this page you will see Current Enrollments, Past Enrollments and, possibly, Future Enrollments (depending on the time of the year).
Students – Students can access their Canvas courses one week prior to the start of the semester in which they are taught. This was an agreement between by the Associates Dean’s Academic Council (ADAC), the University Registrar, and the Learning Management System Team (LMS Team).
Faculty – Faculty can access their Canvas courses on the following dates:
Fall – August 1st
Spring – December 1st
Summer – May 1st
Students – Students have access to their Canvas courses until the day after grades post in myNMSU for the semester in which the courses were taught. This was an agreement between the Associates Dean’s Academic Council (ADAC), the University Registrar, and the Learning Management System Team (LMS Team).
Faculty – Faculty have access to their Canvas courses in a read-only mode for 2 years and 1 week beyond the end of the semester in which the course was taught. This allows for the retention of the course data in case of grade challenges and Incompletes.
Students can access any file that was uploaded to a course as an attachment or assignment by going into their Profile (clicking on their name in the upper right corner of the Canvas Dashboard), clicking on the Files tab on the left side navigation menu, and looking in the “unfiled” folder. These are the files as they were attached or submitted. If a student needs access to a file that was annotated, they will need to contact the instructor of the course.
Faculty can download individual assignments from past courses by going into the course list, clicking on “View All or Customize”, and then scrolling down to Past Enrollments. After clicking into the course, you would click on “Grades”. Once there, locate the assignment and click on the drop-down of that column. This is where you’ll find “Download Submissions” (to download all submissions) and “Speed Grader”. Opening assignments in Speed Grader will give you the ability to view and/or download individual submissions.

There is a browser caching relationship between the file uploader and browsers that sometimes prevent users from uploading files into Canvas.
The recommended Windows browsers for Canvas are Firefox and Chrome. If you are using a Mac, Safari is also recommended. Canvas works best with the latest version of the Flash and Java plugins. We do not recommend Internet Explorer.
