myRCC, Canvas + E-mail


The myRCC single sign-on is a portal to access college accounts such as Canvas, student e-mail, and the VCCS SIS (Student Information System). All students are given access to the sign-on at the time of registration. With the self-service features students can update directory information and manage passwords. New students will need to click on “Forgot Username/Forgot Password” link before gaining access to the system.
The myRCC single sign-on can be accessed via the RCC website. If students are having trouble getting into the system, they should e-mail the RCC Helpdesk. Students can find more help on the RCC website.


Canvas is the college’s online course management tool that allows students access to course information such as announcements, syllabi, calendars and deadlines, course requirements, and links to college resources and services. All students have access to Canvas via the myRCC single sign-on. All courses at RCC use the Canvas system.

Instructors make the course materials available for students in Canvas by the first day of class. Students can locate tutorials on how to navigate Canvas on the RCC Help Desk website along with the following:

  • Free antivirus software
  • Microsoft Office 365
  • Announcements area with current college information that should be checked at least once a week
  • Student computing discounts

Student E-mail

Upon admission to RCC, the Virginia Community College System assigns each student a student e-mail account. Students can access their account by logging into the myRCC single sign-on portal. E-mail is an official method for communication at RCC. Students are expected to check their official VCCS e-mail frequently and consistently in order to remain informed of college-related communications. It is recommended that students check their student e-mail daily.

Students at RCC are responsible for the consequences of not reading, in a timely fashion, college communications sent to the official VCCS student e-mail account.
