Trying to access your RacerMail (email) from a Kentucky School System? If your Kentucky school blocks Google applications but you still want to check your RacerMail account at school with your Live@Edu account, click here for more options.

IMPORTANT NOTES about Canvas access:

  • Students will automatically have a Canvas account created for them when they are admitted.  Not all classes use the Canvas system. Check with your instructor about the use of Canvas in your course.
  • Students should be able to log in and access their Canvas courses the first week of the semester, once your instructor publishes the course.
  • An instructor must publish a course before a student will see it listed under Courses.  If your course has not been published, you can see it listed by clicking on "Courses" in the left-side menu, then clicking on "All Courses", and then scrolling down to "Future Enrollments".
