Canvas Information

What is Canvas?

Have you found yourself wondering about where to find your “online” courses or what a “hybrid” course is?

  • Canvas is utilized by faculty in a variety of ways for online courses, hybrid courses, and even face-to-face courses.
  • If you have a course that’s “hybrid”, make sure you go to the classroom in-person at the scheduled meeting day and time for the first class session.
  • Your professor will give you more information about how the hybrid class will be arranged on the first day.
  • Follow the easy steps below to access Canvas!

*Please note that not ALL courses will have a Canvas shell and most courses will publish within Canvas on the first day of class.

How to access your online courses:

  1. Log in to OneLogin at (use your USAO .edu email and password)
  2. Click the Canvas icon
  3. Explore your courses (some courses may not be published until after the first day of classes. Don't worry, just come back and check for the course later.)
