Mizzou's Canvas license restricts non-UM System affiliated users from accessing our system.
Approved Use-Cases for External Users
Mizzou can only allow temporary guest access for:
- guest lecturers,
- accrediting agencies,
- professional reviewers, or
- students and instructors from other institutions participating in a cooperative agreement such as study abroad programs
Getting Access for Approved External Users
External users who fit within the approved use-cases listed above will need a visitor account or temporary access account. See the Visitor & Guest Accounts page on the Division of IT web site to determine the type of account your user(s) need and submit a request. After the account is created, email email@example.com to have the account added to Canvas.
Options for Other Uses
For any purposes where users not affiliated with the university system need to access a Canvas site, MU Extension has a Canvas instance with the appropriate licensure. You can contact Kyle Flinn at Extension ( firstname.lastname@example.org or (573) 882-6382) to discuss hosting that type of site on their Canvas instance.
