Online Courses

You will need to complete the Canvas online orientation as soon as possible!
If you do not complete the orientation you will not have access to your material in the online course.
If you can access Canvas at, click on Canvas link.
Canvas Orientation instructions can be found on the website under dual credit students tab.

It is also a Good Idea to check your NCTC email beginning 2 weeks before classes start -- this is how instructors will send you information not through your personal email. If an instructor chooses to not use Canvas, but instead the online portal that accompanies the textbook from the publisher they may contact you via this method.
