If you were redirected to this page after attempting to log in to Canvas, it may be because your Harvard account was recently created.

It may take up to 24 hours for you to gain access to Canvas while your account is being created. If you need immediate access to a course (for example: to submit an assignment that is due etc.), or you still can’t log in after 24 hours, please contact your academic support staff.


Additional information for cross-registered students

While your cross-registration petition is pending approval, you may need to be added to your course as a Guest with your XID. You can ask your instructor to do this, or have them send an email to your academic support staff with their approval for you to be added to the course site as a Guest.

Once your petition is approved, you may be issued an HUID, which will be enrolled in the course. Once you have an HUID and create a PIN, log in to Canvas with those credentials. *Please note that if you had previously been logging into Canvas with an XID, any submissions including assignments, quizzes, and discussion posts, will not carry over to your HUID enrollment because it is a separate account.*
