How do I get help with Canvas issues?

If you are having trouble logging in with your Canvas credentials, student schedules, or enrollment issues,  please contact your student's school to ensure your account information is correct. Their username is their student number +, and their password is their eight digit date of birth with no slashes or dashes (example: January 1st, 2000, would be 01012000).


If you would prefer email communication, please send an email to and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.




You (and your student) can get help with Canvas by using the Help menu on the left hand side of the Canvas system. The Help menu generates a list of resources to help you with Canvas. 


This page outlines the help links that are included in the Help menu for Lake Elsinore Unified School District. You must be logged in to access these resources.

Report a Problem

Report a Problem

The Report a Problem link helps you report problems in Canvas.

You may find a faster response to your question by searching the Canvas Guides. But if you can't find an answer, you can submit a ticket and get support help.

Submit Ticket

Submit Ticket

In the subject field [1], create a subject for your ticket.

In the description field [2], describe the problem you are experiencing in Canvas. Please be as detailed as possible to help troubleshoot the problem. If you submit tickets frequently, you may prefer to use a screencasting program to create an online link to an image or create a video walkthrough. However, if you're not comfortable using online links, you can submit attachments later if necessary; once you submit the ticket, you'll receive an email from the support team. You can reply to the email with any attachment as needed.

In the drop-down menu [3], select the statement that best describes how the problem is affecting you:

  • Just a casual question, comment, idea, suggestion
  • I need some help but it's not urgent
  • Something's broken but I can work around it for now
  • I can't get things done until I hear back from you

When you're done, click the Submit Ticket button [4].

Depending on your institution's support schedule, you'll receive a reply as soon as possible.
