How do I enable student information system (SIS) submissions for an account?

When you integrate a student information system (SIS) in Canvas, In courses, only assignments are automatically configured to send grades to the SIS; graded discussions and quizzes have to be configured on a case-by-case basis. However, at the account level, you can configure all assignment types to be sent to your SIS automatically.

Even after setting all assignments to be sent to the SIS, instructors can still manage assignments in their courses and manually remove individual assignments, graded discussions, or quizzes that they do not want to send to your SIS. Assignments can be managed from the Assignments page and Quizzes page, or they can be managed when creating an SIS assignment, SIS graded discussion, or SIS quiz.

Notes:

  • Student information systems must be configured by your Customer Success Manager.
  • If the New SIS Integration Settings feature option has also been enabled, you must enable SIS submissions through SIS Integration Settings.
  • Learn more about feature previews in the account features lesson.
