Why don't I see my course?

There are a few reasons why you might not see a course in Learn@UW:

  1. You must expand My Courses or the curent semester. Click the expand to expand the current semester. Refer to this page for more information.
  2. You just registered for the course. To access a course you must first register for the course in My-UW Madison and wait at least overnight to be added to the Learn@UW course. Because Learn@UW roster updates occur once daily (during overnight hours Monday-Friday), an overnight wait is required before you would appear in the course classlist. Please be aware that in instances where you enroll on a Friday, it could require waiting until the following Monday before you are appear in the classlist.
  3. Not every Madison course utilizes Learn@UW. If your instructor has not mentioned Learn@UW, they might not be using it.
  4. The instructor has not activated the course. Course instructors will activate your course at the beginning of the semester, but can choose to temporarily close access to a course.
