How do I sync my course gradebook from Canvas to Infinite Campus SIS?

If your institution has configured the Canvas Infinite Campus SIS integration, you can sync your Canvas gradebook grades to your Infinite Campus gradebook using Grade Passback (GPB). Learn about naming your Canvas assignment groups and setting up Canavs assignments for grade passback.

GPB Guidelines and Restrictions

GBP only works when you comply with the following requirements:

  • An assignment name must be 50 characters or fewer.
  • The course and any assignments must be published.
  • Assignments must be set to sync to Infinite Campus.
  • Assignments must be assigned to the entire course or section. Infinite Campus does not support GPB for differentiated assignments.
  • Assignments must include a due date that is the same for all students in the section or course.
