The Faculty PeopleSoft page, showing access to Canvas and Etudes


Canvas Login ID:  The same as your SAP ID, which is the first part of your academic email address.

  • For example John Q. Smith, with the email address would have the SAP ID "smithjq"

Canvas Password:  You will use the same password to access the new PeopleSoft SIS & Canvas.  

If you need to reset your Canvas password, you just need to follow the steps to reset their SIS password, since both systems will utilize a single-sign on.

If faculty cannot reset their own SIS password, they need to contact the IT department (ext. 2049). Campus IT will either reset their password or contact the District's SAP office, on the instructor’s behalf.

NOTE TO FACULTY: Before you will be able to log into Canvas, you will need to first set up your SIS account, by completing yourr password registration and update procedures.
