Logging into Canvas

If you cannot log in to Canvas, try using the steps below to log in to your account.

If you are trying to log into a Free-for-Teacher account, view Logging into a Free-for-Teacher account.

Verify Canvas URL

Verify Canvas URL

Verify that you are using the correct Canvas URL for your school or institution.

If you do not know which URL to use, you may need to contact your institution's IT department.

Note: Depending on your institution, you may need to log in via Single Sign On (SSO). This means you may need to enter your username and password on a login page that displays differently than the image above. For more information on logging into your institution's SSO page, contact your IT department.

Verify Username & Password

Verify that you are using the correct username and password.

  • If you use more than one Canvas URL, make sure you are using the correct login and password for each Canvas URL.
  • If your login and password were given to you from your institution and you are having trouble logging in, please contact your institution. (Your institution may have changed your login credentials.)
  • If you do not have a login and password, you may need to create an account.

Use Incognito/Private Browser

Something in your browser may be blocking your access to Canvas. To verify this, try using Chrome’s incognito or Firefox Private mode.

I need help to create canvas account. thank you

Good Morning!

This is Francoise Benaca. I need help to create a canvas account for my son Bernardy Altema and having trouble with the pairing code also.

No he podido encontrar la contraseña

Hello! I have not logged onto canvas in a long time and am wanting to pick up where I left off. However, I do not remember my password and the email I used to create my account no longer exists. I used my college email and since I have been graduated for a few years the university deleted my email. How can I change both my email and password for login?

Where do i get a login code to set up canvas

Pls help me to enter my account

i have to fishing  the course

no admite mi correo, como puedo iniciar secion

It dont let me log in and forgot password

my launch thing isnt working even though i used the exact password they gave me


I am not able to log into the acct I just created and saved with password to do the required Strong Start 2020-2021 Course.  This is his mother trying to log into my Canvas Observer acct.


Thanks for reaching out! That's strange that you're not able to log in to your Canvas account. If you're enrolled in a Canvas course yourself (sounds like you might be?), you'll have a student account for that. I'd recommend reaching out to your child's institution for some help since they'll know best where to direct you. In the meantime, if there's anything we can help clarify or if you have any additional questions, my teammates and I will do our best to help.



I am not able to log into my account which is the remote learning class through Joliet86 school district. I am using the correct password. When I click on forgot password I get message that says will hear in 30 minutes how to reset password and I never get a message. VERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYy frustrating. There is a lot of work to do this weekend. Thank you
