Online classes at SC4
SC4 uses the Canvas learning management system for online classes. On the first day of class, you’ll see your courses listed on your Canvas dashboard. Before classes begin though, be sure you have your password set up, and you’ve participated in the Canvas Online Student Orientation so that you can easily view course materials, take quizzes, submit assignments and participate in class discussions.
In order to use Canvas you’ll need to set up your SC4 username and password. If you haven’t set this up yet, go to portal.sc4.edu/student. You will need your SC4 acceptance letter that contains your unique temporary password. Need help? Give us a call at (810) 989-5858.
