Username

  • Your username for Canvas is your RTC student ID number.
  • This is an 9-digit number you can find on your student ID card, schedule, or registration.

Password

  • Your password is the first 8 letters of your last name.
  • If your last name is shorter than 8 letters, it will repeat from the beginning of the last name until it reaches 8 letters. For example, smith would become smithsmi.
  • If your last name has a hyphen, remove it. For example, koshi-lum becomes koshilum.

Examples

Smith = smithsmi

Le = lelelele

Koshi-Lum = koshilum


Make sure to:

  • Type your ID number with no dashes. 840-123-446 becomes: 840123456
  • Type your last name all lower case. Jones becomes: jonesjon
