Canvas does not allow you to send emails before the course is published, however,
you can send a pre-semester email to students through WebAdvisor. A word of caution,
students will be able to see your email address when sending emails this way.

Click the Log In tab
2. Click Class Rosters
3. Select a Term, then Submit
4. Select Class Contact Roster and Submit, then scroll down to bottom of the Class Contact Roster and click "Click
to send Email To The Entire Class"
If there are any issues, you can also copy and paste the emails into your email To: field.
5. Send the email
The steps above will open the default email program on your computer. Complete the
email and send it.
Reminder - students will be able to see your return email address.
