Canvas Log-In Instructions

SMCC uses the Canvas learning management system for online course delivery. Your online classes will not show up in Canvas before the date the classes start.

To log into Canvas, follow the instructions below:

  1. Go to the Southwest website www.smcc.edu.
  2. Click the Canvas icon at the bottom of the page.
  3. This will bring you to a page that asks you for your username and password.
  4. Your username is your SMCC student ID number and your password is your date of birth (ex. 050982). If you have ever logged into Access Southwest and changed your password from your birth date to something different, your password for logging into Canvas will be changed also. If you decide to change this password after classes start, the new password will not work until the next day.
  5. Once you have logged in, you should see all online and traditional courses you have scheduled to take.

Note: SMCC recommends using Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, or Safari when working with Canvas.
