Before the Semester Starts, Do the Following:

If you are waitlisted for any courses, visit the How to Manage Your Waitlisted Courses webpage for important information.

Preview what textbooks are required and purchase or rent from the RC Bookstore online.

Textbook information can also be located in WebAdvisor by clicking on the “My Bookstore” link in each courses section information or in Canvas by clicking on the “My Bookstore” icon located on the side bar along the left hand side of the page.

Once the Semester Starts, Do the Following:

Attend your classes on the first day of school. If you are taking an online class, be sure to access your courses in Canvas through My Portal the first day of the semester. You may be dropped from a class if you fail to attend the first class meeting or do not access your online courses in Canvas.

Review the Student Canvas Training page for more support on all things Canvas.

If you are waitlisted for a class when the semester starts, you still need to attend the first day. If there is room available, the instructor will give you an “Authorization Code” to enroll in the class. If you are waitlisted for an online course, you will need to email the instructor to see if there is room for you to enroll in the class. You can find the instructor’s contact information when you click on the course link under “section name and title” column in web advisor. If there is, the instructor will email you an “Authorization Code” to enroll in the class.
