Hello  @jdurham ​...

At our Technical College, we already have single sign-on set up for our Canvas instance.  In a nutshell, our students and instructors can log in to our portal website using their school-issued login ID and password.  Then, we have a Canvas icon inside our portal website that takes them right into their Canvas course(s)...no additional sign-in is necessary.  So yes, this is possible already.  You may need to talk with your IT people at your school and your Customer Success Manager at Instructure for more information.  Hope this helps!

What  @chofer ​ said - Single Sign On is something Canvas can handle, if your institution can set it up.  We have it running, and it definitely is a time saver for our IT team, and makes it a much smoother process for our users.
