With all of your classes online, professors may use various methods to communicate with you. It is important to make sure your Canvas notification settings are properly configured. You can receive notifications by email, text message, or Canvas Student app push notifications, or a combination of all three. Be sure to add any additional contact methods to ensure you are getting your messages where you want them and set the notifications for "Conversations" and "Announcements" to get notified right away.
