Canvas for Graduate Studies


Course sites will be available in Canvas for ‘building’ at the end of April/early May 2022.

What to Expect

  • Graduate faculty will be responsible for backing up materials from Sakai and building their own course sites in Canvas.
  • TLT will send an email when courses are created and a reminder to Graduate faculty for any course site merge requests.

Accessing Canvas

  • Go to  
  • Log in with your Network ID and password (same as Sakai or Outlook) 
    • If you need your password reset, please contact 
    • If you are already logged into Microsoft Outlook, your credentials should ‘pass through’ to Canvas.
