Dear faculty and students,

I’m writing you today to provide details on an upcoming change to your login experience on the university’s Canvas system. This change is to better align Canvas with the newest security protocols put into place and to make it more ready for the transition to a more robust, multifactor authentication system coming soon. On Thursday, February 18th, Technology Services will be changing the login experience from the existing (depicted below) service:

An updated, Google authentication system will appear as follows:

You will continue to use your standard, university credentials and the remainder of Canvas will act and appear the same as before. 

As always, if you have any questions or challenges with this change, please contact our service desk at or call us at 253-879-8585.

Thank you,

Jeremy Cucco
Associate Vice President for Technology Services
Chief Information Officer
