Canvas FAQs

  • What is Canvas?

    Canvas is an online educational environment that allows teachers to provide instructional support, class calendars, assignments and resources for students.

  • How does my student access Canvas?

    Students can access Canvas using their current network username and password. If your student doesn’t know these credentials, please have him/her see the campus Library staff.

  • Can parents access Canvas?

If there are issues with logging in, please contact the campus to get the correct HAC credentials.
