Courses that show up on the home page of myCourses are pinned. Here's how you can find your courses for the current semester and pin the ones you want to your home page.

When are courses available

Courses will not be shown in the My Courses listing or in search results until they are available to users.

Instructor have access to courses eight-weeks before the start date of record on SIS, as long as the scheduling officer for the college has made the assignments.

Students have access to courses one-week before the start date of record on SIS.


Finding by semester

  1. In the My Courses listing, click the View All Courses link at the bottom of the listing.




  2. To the right, click the Filter drop-down menu.

    This may take a moment to load if you have been at RIT for a while and have courses across a number of semesters.




  3. Check off the semester you wish to filter on.

    The listing will update to show only the courses in that semester. You can click on the page outside of the filter menu to have the menu go away.

    If the list is longer than the menu, you can scroll by pointing your mouse at the menu and using your mouse wheel.

    You can also search for a term at the top of the listing.

 

Pinning courses to your home page

Pinning Issue - Mozilla Firefox ESR

There is currently an issue with Pinning/Unpinning courses in Firefox 52 ESR. RIT will be taking the fix for this issue around the middle of January.

You can use any other supported web browser to pin your courses and return to using Firefox ESR for your regular use. You can use the latest versions of Apple Safari, Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and even the latest version of Mozilla Firefox that is not the ESR release to pin your courses.



  1. To pin a course to your front page, point your mouse at the course you wish to pin. A button labeled … appears at the top-right of the course icon.




  2. Click the … button and select Pin from the menu.




  3. The course is now listed under the Pinned heading and will always be shown on the Home page of myCourses.




  4. Pinned courses can also be easily accessed through the Course Selector found at the top of most pages throughout myCourses.
