Canvas is where your actual classes will take place for an online class. This is where you will interact with your instructor, other students, read materials, take quizzes, submit assignments and everything else class related for any online classes at Cerritos College. To access Canvas, go to and chose Canvas from the quick links menu. For Canvas you will log in with your student ID again and your Password (birthday MMDDYYYY). Note that for Canvas, we use the full 4-digit year in the password. Once you log in, you will be able to see your courses. Keep in mind that you often will not be able to see your course in Canvas until just before the class starts or even that first day of class. These are “living” places and your instructors are hard at work creating a wonderful class experience for you.
