Canvas online course delivery system

Canvas is the name of Kettering College’s online course delivery system. Many courses use Canvas for communication, grade posting, material delivery, and testing. Canvas is accessible from off campus by navigating to canvas.

Your CANVAS username is just like your email username: first initial,middle initial, and last name, up to but NOT including “”. If you are logging in for the first time, click on the “Don’t know your password?” link and enter your full KC email address to request the change. Now check your KC email and follow the link to set your new password. The same process can be used if you forget your CANVAS password in the future.

If you do not receive any email messages after a few minutes, please contact the IT help desk. As soon as courses are published by the professor, you will receive an email notification and a message on your CANVAS dashboard. From that point on you will be able to access your courses. NOTE: new student CANVAS accounts are not activated until the week before classes begin.
