Setting Up Accounts

As an Independent Study in Idaho student, you are provided with a University of Idaho student account. You will use this account to access your course via Canvas, your University of Idaho email through Office 365, University of Idaho library resources, and more.

To go through the initial setup process to activate your account, you need access to the phone number or email address you provided on your registration form. Additionally, you will need your Vandal number (also called a V-number). You can find this on your registration confirmation letter; if you cannot find it, please contact the ISI office.

Setup a New Student Account

Complete the process to set up a new student account described on the New Student Guide.

If you encounter any problems during the setup process, submit a service ticket at When submitting a ticket, include the following information:

  • your name
  • your V-number
  • a note that indicates you are an Independent Study in Idaho student
  • a short description of your problem (including screenshots and error messages when appropriate)

Once you have set up your security profile and activated your account, you will be able to access your course via Canvas.

If your course does not appear on Canvas within three business days of the date of registration, please email the ISI office. Likewise, if you have not received registration confirmation within three business days of ordering your course, please email the ISI office
