Requesting Summer 2018 Courses through REGIS CSS

Rutgers Teaching and Learning with Technology (TLT) has worked with University Scheduling and Space Management to refine how a Canvas course can be requested through the Course Scheduling System. This update will support all delivery modes of course offerings: face-to-face, hybrid, and online.

To request your Canvas course site for new terms through the Rutgers Course Scheduling System (CSS) within SIMS, please work with your departmental administrators or departmental course editors to accurately code your course offering. For any course section, please ensure the following:

  • Any Print Comments: select code "5 - Go to"
  • Instructor Assignments: add NetID of the instructor
  • Course Role: "IN - Instructor"

Our automated system will begin to create new Canvas course sites the week of February 19 and update Canvas daily as CSS/SIMS is updated. Using CSS/SIMS is the preferred option for requesting Canvas course shells, though, requests will be accepted via email to

This process is an update to a previous announcement.
