Canvas Help & Support - Login

There are a few different reasons a user may be unable to login to Canvas, please review the information below.  For assistance with a different Canvas issue, please see the Canvas Help & Support front page.

New UM-Dearborn student or faculty member?

It may take up to a week for information to populate throughout all UM-Dearborn systems (including Canvas).  Usernames (uniqnames) and passwords will be sent by ITS.  For students, access to Canvas will be available after approximately one week of being admitted and also being registered for at least one class for 24 hours.  For faculty, access to Canvas will be granted after being assigned as the instructor of record of at least one course in Banner.

Forgotten password?

Please Contact the ITS service desk to inquire about password resets.  Canvas (as with most other UM-Dearborn systems, including e-mail) requires a uniqname and kerberos password for login.

Correct Canvas site?

Please ensure you are accessing UM-Dearborn Canvas NOT the UM-Ann Arbor Canvas, as these are completely separate sites.


Still Unable to login?

Please contact college support staff on regular UM-Dearborn work days from 8am-5pm.
