Finding your Course's Canvas SIS ID

The Canvas SIS ID is a way to identify a specific Canvas Course Site. This ID is unique to each course and is useful to provide when reporting tech issues or requesting assistance with your Course Site. The SIS ID can also be used in Middleware 2.0 to copy course content into your newly created course shells.


Look in the Settings area of a Canvas Course Site and locate the SIS ID. This is the unique course ID that is useful to include when requesting help with a Canvas Course Site.

What if your course does not have an SIS ID?

Some courses (such as Master courses) might not have a SIS ID. Another option for these courses is to use the 5 digit Canvas URL Code.
