Accessibility and Accommodations

Canvas provides a user experience that is simple and intuitive. Special attention has been paid to making Canvas screen-readable. The Rich Content Editor encourages users to create accessible content pages through text formatting and paragraph styles. Canvas is designed to allow limited customization of colors and schemes to be accessible for all users.

Read the Accessibility Statement from Canvas to see how the learning management system (LMS) at the University of North Florida is committed to providing a system that is usable by everyone.

Students with disabilities who seek reasonable accommodations in the classroom or other aspects of performing their coursework may register with the Student Accessibility Services (SAS), located in Building 57, Room 1500. They can also be reached at or 904-620-2769. SAS staff work to ensure that all students have equal access to educational opportunities at the University of North Florida.
