How do I log in to the Canvas Student app on my Android device with a QR code?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I log in to the Canvas Student app on my Android device with a QR code?

Once you download the Canvas Student app from the Play store, you can use the app to log in to your Canvas account.

You can generate a unique QR code from your Canvas web browser to quickly log into the app. This method uses your credentials from the QR code to log you into the app. The QR code is located in your account profile (User Navigation Menu).

If you do not want to locate your Canvas URL every time you log in to Canvas, learn how to switch to another user account.
