Live Course Sites - Canvas Skip to main content

Live Course Sites are the official worksites integrated with Rutgers Course Scheduling Systems and Student Information Systems. The supported systems include REGIS, BANNER, and ANCOR (non-credit professional development).


Undergraduate and Graduate Courses

All Undergraduate and graduate sections are set up in Canvas before the start of each semester.

  • One Canvas course site is created for each active RegIndex number and BANNER CRN.
  • Student rosters in Canvas are synced with the student information system every morning.
  • Assigned instructors in the Course Scheduling Systems are added to their Canvas section.

Additional information about how OIT handles the course, student, and teacher can be found at Course and Enrollment Provisioning.
