Community Courses

Faculty, Staff and Recognized Student Organizations can use the form below to request a community course (a non-official course useful for orientations, trainings, workshops or any other activity that could benefit from having an online group space) in Canvas. Please verify all the information before submitting, as your course will be created exactly as requested below. 

Enrolling Users

A variety of roles are available in Canvas. You also have a few options for enrolling users.

Note that all course participants must have a CU Login Name and IdentiKey password to be able to access and enrolled in Canvas courses. If you wish to enroll a person in your course who does not possess these credentials, you can set up a sponsorship through the IT Service Center. Learn more about sponsored accounts.

Note that public courses allow individuals who are not CU Boulder affiliates and those who are not enrolled in your course to view certain components. For more details about public courses, review the Canvas Course Visibility page.

Unenrolling Users

If a student is self-enrolled, they can unenroll from a course themselves. Share the instructions to drop a self-enrolled class so they can learn how.

Instructors can also unenroll students from the course settings. If you would like assistance unenrolling a large number of users (25+), contact the IT Service Center at or (303)735-4357 (5-HELP).
