Adding Person to Course

Community Member

I am having an issue adding a person to my course. She created a free account as a teacher. When I tried to add her as a student to my course, I received this message: "The email address provided conflicts with an existing user's email that is awaiting verification. Please add the user by either SIS ID or Login ID." I tried the Login ID and received the same message. 

Do I have to wait until she receives a verification email from Canvas?
