To access your Canvas account you will need an SMU ID. Our office is working with SMU to obtain the proper permissions to assign an SMU ID to COSS students. Once the process is completed, you will receive instructions via email on how to activate your SMU ID and create a password to access Canvas. Then, you will be able to access your courses online to submit your pre-class assignments.
