Course Creation / Migration Request

IMPORTANT: If your course is at another school at Penn, please click here for information about how to request your course site.

Note: The University’s Student Record System (SRS) enrolls students, TAs, instructors and co-instructors to Canvas courses every 24 hours. Please contact the GSE Student Records Office to add TAs, official student auditors, and co-instructors to courses. Be sure to review our Canvas User Policy for more information.

Option 1: If you are the assigned instructor/TA on the registered course

Please log into the GSE Canvas Course Request website with your PennKey. You can follow the instructions on the website to request and create a Canvas course site. The website will only list registered courses and instructors/TAs.

Make sure you submit a ticket to the GSE-IT Support Portal or send an email to Canvas Support at Penn GSE with questions or concerns.

Option 2: If you are submitting a bulk request to create multiple Canvas sites for your program

Please download and fill out the Canvas Site Bulk Creation Template. Then email the completed form to Canvas Support at Penn GSE. GSE IT will follow up with questions and notify you once the course has been created in Canvas.

Option 3: If you are submitting a request to create or migrate only ONE course for an instructor

Please complete the form below to request a Canvas course site for your Penn GSE. Once you submit your request, GSE IT will follow up with questions and notify you once the course is available in Canvas.

*If no date is specified, you can expect a turnaround time of 1-2 weeks for requests that require content migration and 2-4 days for blank course requests.
