Canvas Request System

The Canvas Request System is the tool that will be used to request the combination of course sections as well as:

  • Request the combination of cross-listed course sections.
  • Add/modify/remove users in non-registrar courses.
  • Request a Development/template canvas course site (Coming early summer 2021).
  • Request an Organization canvas course site (Coming early summer 2021).

For more information about the Canvas Request System please see this help article.

I have a course/organization that will still be running when we switch to One Canvas. What do I need to do?

You will work with UM eLearning staff to schedule a cutover date. Please fill out this planning form if you have a course or an organization that will run past August 11th and we will work with you to arrange a specific date to migrate your Canvas site. If you have questions about using the planning form please see this help article.

NOTE: For Mizzou Instructors

Beginning Fall 2021 Mizzou instructors will no longer need to request your Canvas course sites using the course request form each semester. However, you will need to request that any cross-listed sections be combined using the Canvas Request System form above.
