How do I sync grades to Infinite Campus in the Gradebook?

How do I sync grades to Infinite Campus in the Gradebook?

If your institution is using the Infinite Campus gradebook as a student information system (SIS), you can use the Canvas Gradebook to pass grades back to Infinite Campus. Grades are passed back if an assignment is specifically included as part of the grades transfer. You can include grades for assignments, graded discussions, and quizzes on a per-assignment basis.

Infinite Campus does not validate any assignments in the Grades page as validations for assignment names and dates are part of the assignment setup process.

Infinite Campus requires specific setup procedures to properly post grades for assignments. For details and troubleshooting tips, please view the Instructor Help: Canvas and Infinite Campus document in the Community or this client-produced tutorial video..


  • This integration requires prior configuration in Canvas. For assistance, please contact your Canvas admin.
  • If you use a manual posting policy in your course, you need to post grades before you can sync grades to your SIS.

Open Grades

In Course Navigation, click the Grades link.

Open Monitoring and Reporting

Note: Depending on when your SIS was implemented, the Monitoring and Reporting link may be named Grade Sync.

View Reporting Tab

The Sync Status page defaults to the Reporting tab, where you can view the status of the sync request.

In the search field [1], you can search for a specific sync request by course, section, or user SIS ID.

You can also filter by status. By default, the Everything status is selected, which displays all sync results in the page [2]. You can filter syncs by Cancelled, Errors, Failed, In Progress, In Queue, and Success.

Each status type displays the number of sync requests for each status [3]. To filter by a specific status type, click the name of the status.

View Sync Tab

View Sync Tab

To manage grade passback options, click the Sync tab [1].

To run a bulk grade passback for all grades in your course, click the Submit button [2]. Running a bulk grade passback sends every grade in the gradebook to your SIS. This option can be used if you notice a discrepancy between your Canvas and Infinite Campus gradebooks.

To schedule a sync to run daily, select the Scheduled Daily Sync checkbox [3]. This option sends any new grades that were updated for assignments set to sync to SIS. To save your daily sync setting, click the Save button [4].


I am able to sync my Canvas Gradebook with Infinite Campus.  However when I do that it doesn't sync items that I have identified as Missing.  It does sync scores that I have marked as excused.  How can I get the Missing identifier to carry over into Infinite Campus? I have a default missing score entered as 0 and that goes into Campus but does not indicate that the assignment is Missing to the student.

Thanks so much


     So all of my classes are syncing fine with IC except one.  Every time that I am trying to sync it shows errors in the reporting.  I cant see what the errors are so I am not sure how to fix.  Any help would be appreciated.

@jnabb and @mr_b_643,

I would suggest reaching out to your school so they can troubleshoot the issues and point you in the right direction for support.


When will these instructions change to reflect the new look for GPB?  It is a completely different look and new terminology.  Or am I the only one that is seeing this?

Hi @morris_gart,

Thanks so much for pointing that out! We'll take a look and update the document with any necessary changes. 


@CanvasDocTeam we have the same issue as @jnabb with Canvas only sending over "exempt" statuses and not "missing". According to my IT it is not a site/district issue.

Thanks @dorph31. Please reach out to Canvas Support or Infinite Campus to report any issues.
