Canvas LOGIN HELP
When to Login?
Check the District Schedule for the day that your course starts. All students taking fully or partially online classes will be able to login and access their classes on the first day the course starts. Students taking on-campus courses will be informed by their instructor about access to their course Canvas site. Not all on-campus courses utilize Canvas.
Please note that students who register for a course on or after the first day of classes will have to wait 4 - 24 hours for their Canvas course access to be activated.
How to Login?

Returning online students, use your current password.
