  • Canvas accounts are not created by the institution, rather parents create their Canvas accounts themselves using a self registration process.
  • Parents access Canvas via a desktop or mobile web browser (i.e. Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer, etc.).
  • Canvas accounts created through Parent Registration are separate from the accounts created by other parent workflows (provisioning or Parent App).
  • Parents must have access to student credentials in order to link to their children (*more details outlined in the documents linked below).
