Getting Access to Canvas
The tabs below provide information on how to add users to Canvas courses for various roles. For information on the permission settings associated with each role, check out this link.
We are no longer able to add students to Canvas courses. Students are granted access to Canvas if they are registered in a course.
Thank you for understanding.
Students, Instructors, and TAs are automatically enrolled through UBC systems through SISC, and timetable representatives. For full details about the process of adding TAs to Canvas, check out this link.
Our office cannot add users to Canvas, except Auditors and Course Assistants.
Please contact your specific department's timetable representatives to complete this request. Contact information for those representatives can be found here.
