What are my self-service single sign-on and rostering options with Canva for Education?

Currently, Canva for Education supports any SAML 2.0-capable identity provider for SSO. While we recommend Classlink SAML as the simplest and most reliable single sign-on option for schools and districts rostering with Classlink, we routinely support districts using SSO through Google, Microsoft Azure, ADFS, and Rapid Identity, among others. (If you need further information about setting up SAML through Classlink, please contact Classlink by filling out the form below or calling 1-888-963-7550.)


Who do I contact to set up Canva for Education for my school or district?

If you’d like to connect with the Canva for Education Team to learn more about a school or district deployment, please contact us here. Canva for Education (K-12) is 100% free for schools and districts and Canva for Campus (Higher Education) is a paid offering.


Do I get a discount on ClassLink's standard pricing when I work with them to set up rostering and SSO into Canva for Education?

The Canva for Education and ClassLink partnership provides a great incentive to customers to roster through ClassLink. Roster Server Lite has a nominal one-time setup cost and the annual recurring charges are waived for two years. ClassLink offers two options to Canva customers: first, the full suite of ClassLink services, second is Roster Server Lite, which offers the full Roster Server functionality for Canva for Education but excludes SSO and other components of the full ClassLink Suite. Customers using Roster Server Lite are often offered incentives to migrate to the full ClassLink Suite.


I’m already a ClassLink customer. Is there anything I need to do with either Canva for Education or ClassLink to take full advantage of this new partnership?

Please contact your ClassLink account manager to discuss migration of any Canva for Education platform configurations to ClassLink.
