Logging in to Canvas requires you to use your EvCC username and password.
For students, the username will be the first letter of your first name, plus your middle initial, plus your last name. If you have never logged in the EvCC network, your default password will be the first letter of your first name (uppercase) plus the first letter of your last name (lowercase), plus your 9-digit student ID number.
