Canvas Support for Students

Canvas is EMU's new learning management system (online course system) which will launch campus-wide in May 2015.

The Canvas system is easy to learn and use! We've put together some information on this page that will help you get acclimated and learn where to go for help should you need it.

Logging In

The log-in page for Canvas is  canvas.emich.edu

Log in using your EMU NetworkID username and password -- the same credentials you use to access your EagleMail.

Getting Help

Canvas has a 24/7 helpdesk just for Eastern Michigan students that you can access by phone, email, or chat:
