Polk State College is transitioning from PAL to Canvas, which students will use to receive important course updates, submit assignments, communicate with professors, and more. Starting spring 2018, students will navigate their traditional, online, and hybrid courses through the new system, which has an easy-to-use interface, a mobile-friendly app, and a 24-7 help desk.   The College will notify students with more information through College email, social media, and PAL.
