Online Student Concern Process

If you have concerns or complaints regarding your e-Learning course, please follow the Student Concerns/Academic Appeal process described in the college catalog. Forms are available at Student Concern Process.

Students residing outside of Washington State and enrolled in distance education courses may submit a complaint with the Washington Student Achievement Council after exhausting the institution’s complaint resolution process. The Washington Student Achievement Council (WSAC) has authority to investigate student complaints against specific schools. WSAC may not be able to investigate every student complaint. Visit for information regarding the WSAC complaint process.

How to Log In

To log into Canvas, go to the CPTC Canvas login page, at

Canvas will always use your Student ID number as your username.  The default password is the first 8 letters of your last name, all in small letters.  If your last name contains fewer than 8 letters, repeat those letters until you have 8.  For example, if your last name is Reed, the password would be reedreed.

Using Lockdown Browser

Some instructors will require the use of a special web browser for taking tests at home.  If your instructor requires Lockdown Browser, click on Respondus Lockdown Browser to download and install it on your computer.  Lockdown Browser is also installed on computers in the Learning Resource Center, for your use.
