Why Can't I See My Course?

Before you can see your courses, your professors have to make them "visible".

  1. Log into ACORN. You will be redirected to your Dashboard.
  2. The default Course overview will show you (1) In progress courses. If the term hasn't started yet, you will find your upcoming courses by selecting (2) Future from the dropdown. Once the Monday of the first week of classes comes, they will move to (1) In progress. After the term finishes (generally December 31st and April 30th) courses will move to (3) Past (view image).

If you still can't see a course after following these steps, please talk to your professor. They can confirm whether or not they have made the course visible, and if you are listed as a student in the course yet. Updates to student registrations happen twice a day, so ACORN can be half a day behind in that regard. If you registered for the course more than a day before and still are not showing up, you should check with the Registrar's Office.
