Giving a student with an incomplete access to a Canvas course

In order to allow a student with an incomplete access to your Canvas course site past the end of the semester, or custom enrollment period of a Self-paced Canvas course, you will need to use the Delayed Grade Section in the Canvas Request System.  The student's enrollment in the delayed grade section must be recorded with the registrar in PeopleSoft as DL (delayed) until you update the record with their final grade.

  1. Log into the Canvas Request System.
  2. Select Delayed Grade Sections in the upper menu (See, Fig. 1).
  3. Enter one of the following in the Search box (See, Fig. 1).
    Course number, Reference number, Partial or Full Course ID, Instructor SSO ID
  4. Select Search (See, Fig. 1)
    Delayed Grade Sections is highlighted in the Canvas Request System navigation bar, with a course in the search field
