Pre-Arrival Tasks and Resources

Pre-Arrival Tasks and Resources

New students will be able to access "Canvas," Notre Dame's online environment designed to facilitate teaching and learning.

As a student, many of your courses will use Canvas to share information, enable collaboration and discussion, and provide feedback critical to your growth as a scholar.

Canvas is also a tool that you can use to complete several required tasks as you step into your first semester at Notre Dame. Many of these tasks have specific deadlines and must be completed before you arrive on campus. 

Note: We have received a few reports from students that the BCND modules are not yet accessible via Canvas. Please know that we are working with the site vendor to ensure all new students have access with plenty of time to complete these important modules. Please navigate back on the Canvas site periodically to check your access status. If you do not have access by the first week of January, contact Laura Connelly at
