All Clark College students are issued 3 accounts from the college:
A student email account is issued upon admission to Clark College. This is a free Google account where you'll receive important Clark information and news, including notifications from Registration, Financial Aid, Canvas, and other campus resources.
The Student Email can be accessed by logging into a Gmail account with the student email address and password. The Student Email account must be activated before use and is a permanent account.
Clark Labs Account
Clark College provides all current students with a Clark Labs Account that allows access to various services and resources. This account is active for students enrolled for classes during the current quarter. This account password are set to expire therefore must be reset frequently.
The services covered by the Clark Account are disabled between terms. This means students can access these resources only for the duration of the term in which they are enrolled for.
Clark College is now part of the State of Washington's ctcLink program. This allows a student to access their student information, register for classes and view transcripts all from the same service. The ctcLink system will also make credit transfer to other colleges within the State of Washington much easier.
A Student must activate their ctcLink account before they are able to use the system. It is highly recommended that students keep their ctcLink information safe and secure.
Canvas by Instructure, commonly called Canvas, is Clark College's primary Learning Management System (LMS). All online and hybrid courses use Canvas, and many, if not most, face-to-face courses (web-enhanced) use Canvas. Clark College also administers the English Readiness Assessment (ERA) course through Canvas. Canvas accounts are generated after a student is enrollled in a course. There is a delay of at least one business day after enrollment in a course before a student's account is accessible.
Clark College has many resources to get help with account setup, access, or troubleshooting. Students can contact or visit TechHub, ask a Lab Assistant in the Clark computer labs, or contact Lead Labs.
