Create an Associate Account to Enable ELMS-Canvas Access for Non-University Course Participants

Individuals not affiliated with the University of Maryland who need to have a Guest Instructor or Observer role in an ELMS-Canvas course space must first create an Associate Account for themselves.

The account will not be activated in ELMS-Canvas until the account holder logs into ELMS-Canvas once. This means they cannot be enrolled in an ELMS-Canvas course until they have logged into ELMS-Canvas at least one time. The account holder will receive an email to change his/her passphrase every 180 days in order to keep the account alive and access to ELMS-Canvas active.
