In the Canvas Parent app, you can create a Canvas observer account to view student course information. If you already have an account, you can log in to the Parent app.

To link yourself to a student, you will need to enter a student-specific pairing code that will link you to the student. Pairing codes are valid for 24 hours. Students can generate pairing codes from their User Settings. Depending on institution permissions, admins and instructors may also be able to generate pairing codes.
