Know How To Log On to your Course
Online courses at HCC are taught using the learning management system called Canvas. Canvas is included in HCC's Single Sign On services which means that your HCC Login ID provided to you by Information Technology will serve as your login information for Canvas. Steps to login to Canvas are dependent upon your student status at HCC (credit, non-credit, or student attending one of our service center locations). Please visit the Canvas SSO page for more information.
A variety of resources that will assist you in navigating and using Canvas can be found on HCC's Student Training Course Site. Please visit this site frequently as Canvas updates functionality on a regular basis.
