Canvas is Relay’s learning-management system and serves as the central access point for students to find important due dates, complete online coursework, upload assessments, track progress, view instructor feedback on completed assessments, communicate with instructors, and collaborate with peers. Canvas support is available to students 24 hours a day, seven days per week, via phone, email, and chat. Students can access Canvas chat support and the Canvas Community forums through the Help(?) icon located on the blue global navigation sidebar in Canvas, or can call the Canvas student support phone line: (844) 653-1472.
Relay Connect is the members-only online portal where the staff, students, and alumni of Relay’s programs virtually meet and share information. It hosts a jobs board, event postings, news updates, and a weekly newsletter. All members of the Relay community are welcome to join the platform.
The Relay website provides information on all aspects of Relay, including the organization’s history, approach, programs, and campuses. While the website provides logistical information such as the application process, students can also visit the website to read the Relay blog as well as articles and news coverage featuring Relay’s students, staff, and alumni.
Support@relay.edu is the email address for non-academic student support requests. Requests are processed Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. EST.
Relay maintains a robust collection of information and resources for students, staff, and the public on Support Center. This collection allows individuals to self-serve support when they need it. Support Center is accessible via Relay’s website 24 hours a day, seven days per week. When signed in through Relay’s Okta home page, students and staff have access to support articles not available to the public.
Relay primarily employs an electronic and digital approach to providing library and information resources to students and faculty. The majority of Relay Library materials are available in an online or electronic format, accessible through the library catalog. These resources include electronic books (e-books), videos, curriculum resources, and subscriptions to prominent education journals offered through database providers such as EBSCO, ProQuest, JSTOR, and Education Resources Information Center (ERIC). Relay provides these content subscriptions for use by current Relay students, faculty, and staff. Username and password information is to be kept confidential, and material-access privileges may not be shared. Relay Library also participates in a national interlibrary loan service that allows students and faculty to request articles not owned by Relay Library from other institutions.
Relay Library maintains a core collection of books, periodicals, and other print resources at its central office in New York City for use in coursework and research. Smaller collections are also available at the Relay offices in Atlanta, Chicago, Connecticut, Dallas–Fort Worth, Delaware, Denver, Houston, Memphis, Newark, New Orleans, Philadelphia & Camden, San Antonio, and Washington, D.C. These materials are listed on the Relay online library catalog so that students and faculty may locate and browse physical materials held in the library.
Relay is also a member of the Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO), a consortium of over 250 public and private libraries throughout New York City and Westchester County. Students and faculty thereby have the opportunity to use the print and electronic resources of New York City’s finest reference and research libraries. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a guest pass to any of the participating METRO locations.
For guidance using these materials, and for other library questions, students should reference the library course in Canvas, LIB-101: Introduction to the Relay Library. Students may also email email@example.com with feedback or questions.
