Activate your course

All courses are set as inactive by default. If you wish to use TCU Online for your semester courses, you will need to activate those courses by following the steps below. This step is very important, as students cannot see inactive courses. Note: If you requested Shared Shells, follow the steps in the email confirmation you received regarding which courses to activate or leave as not active. 

Once you have activated your course, students will have access to your course at 12:01 AM on the first day of the semester.

  1. Select the course you want to activate from the My Courses list
  2. Select the Course Admin. (right side of nav bar)
    course admin
  3. Select Course Offering Information.
