Canvas LMS LogoCanvas is RCC’s online learning management system for students. Students will be able to view course announcements, syllabi and assignments in Canvas.

Students may also communicate directly with their instructors or each other through a feature New to Canvas – the Inbox, which also ties-in with the VCCS Email system.  Canvas has all new notification features beyond those used in Canvas – see tutorials below for details.

Access Notes:

  • Canvas courses may appear to students before the start of the academic semester but will not be open for work until the first day of the semester. Course materials may be confirmed ahead of time from the class listing on the Class Schedule.
  • If  your classes is not yet visible, you may double check your enrollment status in the Student Information System (SIS) under My Class Schedule.  Enrollments are updated between SIS and Canvas daily.  The instructor does need to publish the course before it becomes visible to students.
  • The VCCS Systems office creates all Canvas accounts at the end of the day once you register for your first course.  Register today and your account will be set up by tomorrow morning.
