Can I add non-UT users to my Online@UT (Canvas) course site?

As Canvas is funded entirely by the UTK Student Tech Fee, no one without an active, current UTK NetID can access UTK's Canvas environment.

However, if you are interested in adding users that do not have a University of Tennessee NetID to your Canvas course site, limited NetID sponsorships are possible. NOTE: Only officially registered and enrolled UTK students have access to the Canvas system and academic course sites. Non-UTK users cannot be added as students to course sites.

You will need to call the OIT HelpDesk at (865) 974-9900 or use the OIT HelpDesk Contact Form to request more information.
