Using a Cirrus Identity Canvas account
UMSystem now provides a way for non-university affiliated, external users to log into Canvas using Cirrus Identity. These accounts are most commonly used for access to non-credit courses and for university guests to access a Canvas course. These accounts may only have Observer access in a for-credit course site. If you would like to use this type of access into Canvas please contact us at email@example.com to see if your situation meets the criteria.
- Guest speaker in a for-credit course
- Access to a non-credit course
- Student test account for instructors
- Organization access for a retired or graduated user
Once you are given permission to create a Cirrus Identity account please see this help article on how to Create, Activate and Verify your account.
