  • To use Canvas, you must be registered for a class, presently or in the past, that used Canvas. The class can either be at Chabot College or LPC.

Default Canvas username and password

  • Username: Your Username for Canvas is your W number (begins with a W followed by 8 digits).
  • Password: The default Password for Canvas is the first two letters of your first name, followed by the first two letters of your last name (all lowercase), followed by the last four digits of your W number.

  • Example: Maria Valdez with a W number of W98765432 would log in as:
