Polk State College is now using Canvas by Instructure for all courses! Students can receive important course updates, submit assignments, communicate with professors, and more with Canvas. All traditional, online, and hybrid courses will be hosted in this new system, which has an easy-to-use interface, a mobile-friendly app, and a 24-7 help desk.

You may contact your former instructor by emailing the instructor’s polk.edu email address from your my.polk.edu address. You may not use the Canvas messaging system to contact your instructor after withdrawal from the course. Students are able to find the instructor’s email address through the Passport course look up.
It may be that some of your courses are not yet published or the course may be date-restricted. To view all your registered courses, click Courses on the Global Navigation Menu.
An unpublished course means the instructor has not yet opened the course to students for access. Contact your instructor with questions. You may contact your instructor by logging in to PASSPORT and emailing your instructor.
If you cannot see content in your course, the instructor may have items unpublished, which means nothing would be showing to you as a student. Contact your instructor with questions.
