On Friday, May 20, 2022, Information Technology Services (ITS) will delete courses in Canvas from the Spring, Summer, and Fall semesters of the following years: 

  • 2014
  • 2015
  • 2016

May 20 will be the first occurrence of ITS’ annual course deletions. Every year thereafter, courses older than five years will be deleted after May commencement. Announcements will be sent approximately one month prior to the courses being deleted. 

Deleting courses cleans up faculty dashboards and course listings in Canvas, makes current and past courses easier to locate, and frees up storage space in Canvas. 

How do I export a Canvas course? provides directions on how to save course material if any faculty wish to do so.
