2. When do courses start?

Generally, the ability to access courses in Nexus for academic programs will often coincide with the start date of the academic term/semester, although this may not always be the case. For information on when a specific course is scheduled to start:
  • Contact the instructor for the course,
  • Refer to any course registration confirmation material you may have already received, or
  • Consult your program's dates for the academic year in the Academic Calendar.

3. Why is a course I’m registered for not visible on Nexus when I sign in?

There are several reasons why a course you are registered for is not visible in Nexus:

  • If you have only registered for the course within the last 24 hours, the registration may not be processed yet. Please wait 24-48 hours after registering for a course to appear in Nexus.
  • The course hasn’t started yet. If the course has not yet started, it will not be visible in Nexus. If you are unsure about when your course is supposed to start, see the answer to question #2 above for further information.
  • The instructor may not be using the Nexus for this course. Contact the instructor to confirm that either the full course itself or specific course materials are meant to be made available online in Nexus.

4. The wrong course is showing in Nexus, what do I do?

If the wrong course is showing up in Nexus, this means that you are enrolled in the wrong course. Please contact Student Central for further help with this matter.

5. How can I access the Syllabus/outline for the course if it isn’t visible on Nexus yet?

Please wait until the course start date to see if the instructor offers to post their syllabus/course outline on Nexus. If the syllabus is not provided there, or if you have further questions about the course's content or requirements, contact the course instructor.

6. Why is a course I unenrolled from still showing up in Nexus?

If you have already withdrawn from a course that also has a Nexus course site, contact Nexus Support to request to be removed from the Nexus classlist for that course.
