When and how can I access my online course?

The first day of general Canvas access for online students is the first day of instruction of the semester, unless otherwise stated in the course schedule. Some courses will have an optional face to face orientation session scheduled BEFORE the general access dates. Students will have access on the scheduled date of the orientation session.

You can access Canvas is several ways:

  1. Using the mySJCportal - log into the portal and click the Canvas tab located on the upper right hand corner.
  2. Using the Canvas Quick Link from the San Juan College homepage.
  3. Entering the Canvas URL (https://canvas.sanjuancollege.edu/login) in your browser's address bar.

You will use a campus standard login to access your course in Canvas.  You will follow the same login sequence that has been implemented for student logins.  Use the following scheme when accessing BOTH your SJC student network from on-campus and your online course(s) from either on or off-campus.

  • j is the first letter of the student’s first name
  • r is the first letter of the student’s middle name (leave blank if you do not have a middle name on file with Admissions and Records)

  • 98 are the last two digits of the student's social security number
