UT Canvas Catalog



Canvas Catalog is an outreach platform for non-credit/non-degree instructional purposes. Colleges or units may use Catalog to offer professional development, public outreach, or other certificate-based courses and programs. Catalog can be accessed by those within the university community, but more importantly, can provide access to those outside of the university. Catalog offerings can be both no fee and fee-based. Enrollment fees can easily be processed via the integrated TouchNet payment gateway. Additionally, special discount and promotional codes can be created to facilitate special partnership and incentive programs.  

Current users of Catalog include:

  • College of Nursing
  • College of Social Work
  • Haslam College of Business
  • College of Veterinary Medicine
  • Tennessee Jobs Factory

There is a fee structure associated with Canvas Catalog. 

  • Catalog for external (non-UTK) users is $6.00 per user per course, effective January 1, 2022, per our new contract with Canvas. To discuss specific costs per course or program, please submit a request online.

UTK users: For help with technical issues involving UT Canvas Catalog, contact the OIT HelpDesk. If you have questions about a course or its requirements, contact the course instructor.
