I'm Registered, Now What?

* PLANNING YOUR CLASSES * AFTER YOU'VE REGISTERED *
As a South Seattle College student, you are responsible for contacting your instructor and getting started in your online course. 

Online i
nstruction doesn't start until the first day of the quarter, just like face-to-face classes, unless arranged otherwise by your instructor. Unregistered students (waiting lists, tuition-waivers) will not be able to login to Canvas https://canvas.southseattle.edu until you are registered. Please contact your instructor to notify them of your registration status, if needed.

  5. Log in to Canvas (Login button located on the right hand side of screen) using the instructions HERE

    -Check your registration. Wait List students cannot access Canvas until they are registered.|

  8. REMEMBER: Successful eLearning students have the necessary time and skills (including patience and flexibility) to learn online and complete their online assignments. Before you take any online class, you should be confident about your computer equipment, computer skills, and study skills, as well as understanding that technical problems sometimes require backup computer plans. You will be responsible for learning the technology needed to complete your class.

Textbooks

Please note: For any questions about course materials, contact your instructor. Instructor contact information can be found on your Course Listings or in your syllabus. The eLearning office does not have information about which books are required for your class.

To order course textbooks go to Go to http://southscc.bncollege.com > select Textbooks > select the Term, Department, Course, and Section > click "Find Materials" button at the bottom to see your course materials.

You can also check the South Seattle College Bookstore by calling (206) 934-5338 to see if the book is in stock. Make sure you know your course item number and section (on your registration papers). You can pick up your book by visiting the South Seattle College Bookstore or you can request that they can mail it out to you (additional fees may apply). Be sure to ask about Rentals and eTextbooks!

You can, instead, order textbooks online from other vendors. You will need to know the book title, author name, edition and ISBN number. Also make sure than any accompanying materials required, such as charts, cds, solutions or lab manuals, etc, are included in your purchase from outside sources! Remember, it may take around a week to receive an ordered textbook. Plan ahead and be prepared!
