Canvas For Students
As Sacramento State's official Learning Management System (LMS), Canvas supports learning wherever you are! It's cloud-based, mobile-optimized, and allows you to access your coursework, submit assignments, and interact with your classmates and instructors whether on- or off-campus.
Setup your Account
Canvas can be conveniently accessed and used on desktop/laptop, tablets/iPads, and mobile devices.
- Visit canvas.csus.edu and login with your Sac State credentials or through My Sac State.
- Download the Canvas mobile app: iOS or Android.
- Review the Canvas Quick-Start Guide.
Canvas & Zoom
Canvas also integrates with Zoom so you can attend virtual class sessions, or host study groups. A Sac State Zoom account isn't required to participate - you'll just need one of the following:
- Through the Zoom tool in Canvas
- You receive a Canvas notification/announcement
- Your instructor emails you a Zoom link.
