Change Coming to TCC Portal and Canvas Login

Posted: 4/27/2021 8:08:00 AM

Dear Titans,


On Wednesday, May 5th, we are excited to be implementing enhanced security and usability to your TCC login experience for some TCC IT services.  You will most notably see this when you log in to the TCC Portal (https://my.tacomacc.edu) and Canvas (https://tacomacc.instructure.com).  Please read for more information.


What will the new login screen look like?

The Username: and Password: boxes and the Login button will be removed from the current login page (https://my.tacomacc.edu).  There will be a button labeled CLICK HERE TO LOGIN which completes your login through Microsoft Office 365 using your TCC email address and password.  The same as you would when you log in to your TCC email (https://outlook.office.com). 


You will no longer see the fields for your User Name and Password.  You will only see one button "CLICK HERE TO LOGIN".



Why is this happening?

This change will allow TCC to extend existing advanced security features to other IT services, most notably the TCC Portal (https://my.tacomacc.edu) and Canvas (https://tacomacc.instructure.com).  The login for those services will become easier to use as well; the CLICK HERE TO LOGIN button will be a faster login from TCC-owned computers.


Try it now!

Preview this functionality on the existing TCC portal login page (https://my.tacomacc.edu) by clicking on the CLICK HERE FOR QUICK LOGIN button. 


Note:  This change will not prevent any current access.  Direct logins to many services, like TCC Email (https://outlook.office.com) and ctcLink (https://gateway.ctclink.us), will not change. 


Thank you for your flexibility and understanding as we work to improve the usability and security of our systems.  Please contact us using the information below if you have any questions.
