 @ebcradio001 ​, we'll need more information in order to assist you--and ultimately, you might be better served by sending a ticket to Canvas Support to start a support case (How do I get help with Canvas?​).


  • Have you been able to add students successfully in the past, using the same method you're currently using, or is this the first time you've tried to add students?
  • When you say you're adding students "by email," are you doing so using the format and instructions in How do I add users to a course?
  • Is it a brand-new course?
  • Is it a course you've created yourself, or has it been assigned to you?
  • If it was assigned to you, have you checked the start and end dates for the course?
  • Does your school normally enroll students via SIS?
  • Is the course published?
  • Are you using a Free For Teachers account?

These are just the questions that immediately came to mind--but given these and the other variables that could be at play here, a support ticket is probably your best next course of action.
