Missing Classes

Instructors have the ability to hide a course from students. Usually courses are hidden before the start of the semester. If you do not see a Moodle course:

  • Contact the course instructor and tell them you do not have access to the course.
  • If you have contacted your instructor and they are certain that the site is not hidden and that you are enrolled, contact [email protected]
  • Check https://canvas.umn.edu to see if your courses are now using the Canvas learning management system.
