McGraw-Hill Connect

The McGraw-Hill Campus service automatically connects students from their CarmenCanvas course to assignments and homework related to their McGraw-Hill textbook.

In order to use the CampusConnect service, faculty who have adopted a textbook that uses the McGraw-Hill CampusConnect homework system first need to create their course in McGraw-Hill Campus and then link their Carmen course to McGraw-Hill.

Student Information

The first time students click the McGraw-Hill link in your course, they will need to create or confirm their account. Students will not need to log in again after creating their accounts.

Instructors do not need to send an email invitation to students since students will activate their accounts and enter via the Carmen course.

See the McGraw-Hill's Connect Success Academy site for additional resources.

If students encounter problems when they are still within the Carmen system (i.e. before they click on the McGraw-Hill link), please contact the IT Service Desk at 614-688-4357. 

If students encounter problems once they are in the McGraw-Hill system (i.e. after they click on the McGraw-Hill link), please contact McGraw-Hill Customer Service at 1 (800) 331 - 5094.
