First Day of an Online Course
All online courses follow dates specified in WebAdvisor when you registered for classes. Please check the SJC course schedule for the exact date. Online students are expected to log in to Canvas (http://canvas.sanjuancollege.edu) on the first day of class.
When you log into your online course, you will see the course cards on your Dashboard. If your courses do not display, click the Courses icon, then click the All Courses link. Click the star next to a course to add it to the Dashboard. Those courses with yellow stars are displayed on the Dashboard.
San Juan College’s online courses are not self-paced. Each instructor has a schedule with assignment due dates that must be met. Online courses typically end on the last day of finals for the semester, however, there are some exceptions. See the SJC course schedule for that exact date each semester.
Additional Tech Support
Students needing additional tech support can visit the ITC website. ITC can assist you with San Juan College user accounts, accessing the internet on San Juan College campuses, and many other technology questions.
