The San Juan College Portal is your college campus when you are online. You are required to use the Portal to access your SJC email and register for classes. You can do so many things in the SJC Portal from check the status of your financial aid, business office information, and communications about campus events.
You should always communicate with SJC Faculty and Staff through the SJC Portal and remember your SJC email is where all important information will be sent to communicate with you from Faculty and Staff. So make sure to check your email so you don’t miss out on important information about financial aid or registration and graduation information.
Canvas is your online classroom. If you are taking an online class you will need to log into Canvas to access your syllabus and class assignments on a daily basis. Canvas is where you post assignments and tests. You can access Canvas through your SJC Portal. You can also check your grades in Canvas. Some instructors from your face-to-face classes will post your grades in Canvas too.
Make sure you go through the guides on how to effectively use Cavas. The technical requirements module of this orientation has some useful information on using Canvas as well.
