How to log in to Canvas

Canvas is a course management system used by Northeast Alabama Community College to provide online access to instructional materials. Every active student has a Canvas account that will be created by the college and activated by the first day of class.

  1. Open NACC website:
  2. Find the MyNACC portal on the upper right side of the screen.
  3. Login to the portal and your apps will be located on the homepage.

IF YOU DO NOT SEE a course you intended to take,
· email the instructor immediately,
· check with the advisor who registered you, and
· ask Financial Aid or the Business Office why your registration is incomplete.

To take a web-based (online) course:

  • Read the Technical Requirements for using Canvas, and make sure you have access to a computer meeting these specifications.
  • Register.
  • Take Orientation for each class as shown on Class Schedule:

-- Attend class Orientation if it meets on campus.
-- Complete class Orientation within Canvas if it is online.
-- Class Orientation is not to be confused with Canvas Orientation, which is a hands-on training session offered at the first of each semester. Class orientation is always required; orientation to using Canvas is recommended the first time you take an online class.

  • If you have not settled all financial obligations to the college, you will be pulled from Canvas until your financial obligations are met.
  • Financial Aid Students: If your instructor does not hear from you by the end of Late Registration, your name will be turned in to Financial Aid as "not attending." If you are having computer problems, go to a different computer and email the instructor; also turn in any assignments due the first few days.
  • ALWAYS use your college email account to correspond with instructors and college offices, never a different account. Mail from other accounts may not be accepted.
  • Have a back-up plan for accessing Canvas and college email when you have computer or Internet problems. NACC computers in the library or computer labs can be used. Never let computer problems make you miss an assignment or message.

Using any computer or information technology resource of Northeast Alabama Community College signifies that the user agrees to comply with the following NACC policies:

The college does not require Canvas orientations; however, individual instructors may require you attend an orientation session. Please check with your instructors for orientation requirements.

This orientation is for Canvas and does not replace your course orientation which will be held on campus or within the Canvas course management system.
