How do I accept an email invitation to join a Canvas course as a student?
If you are using Canvas through your institution, you will most likely already have a Canvas account and need to accept a course invitation before you can log in. Your institution will email your login information.
However, you may also receive a course invitation where you have to create a Canvas account as part of the registration process.
Note: If your institution is using Canvas and you are having trouble with your account, contact your instructor for assistance.
