Having questions about which Canvas Login method to choose?
- UMSYSTEM Login - Choose this option if you are a faculty member, staff member or student at any of the campuses of the University of Missouri System.
- Alternative Login - Choose this option if you are taking a University of Missouri Extension course or an MU Health Care course. Or, if you have received an email invitation from firstname.lastname@example.org to create a guest account to login to Canvas.
Still unsure? Please email email@example.com or call 1-855-675-0755.
NOTE: If you have manually created your Canvas account through Cirrus, your account uses an email address as the Username and this field is case-sensitive. You must enter the Username exactly as you submitted it during account creation. Requesting a password reset will fail if the Username does not match exactly.
- Select the Alternative Login link (See, Fig. 1)
