  2. Alternative Login - Choose this option if you are taking a University of Missouri Extension course or an MU Health Care course. 
  3. Invited Guest Login - Choose this option if you have received an email invitation from noreply@umsystem.edu to create a guest account to login to Canvas. University of Missouri email addresses are not eligible for invited guest login access.
