Student Account Basics


What is my Student ID Number?
Your Student ID Number is also known as your "7-digit College ID".

You'll find your student ID number included in the email sent to you when your application for admission to College of the Redwoods has been reviewed and accepted. It doesn't contain any letters. Keep this number private and do your best to memorize it. You'll need to provide this number whenever you take advantage of the many services available at the College.

What is my User ID?
You'll use your User ID to login to your student accounts.

Your User ID is the first letter of your first name, your full last name, and last three digits of your Student ID number.
For example, let's look at a student named "Bugs Bunny", with a student ID number of "0123456".

Student Name: Bugs Bunny
Bugs Bunny's Student ID Number: 0123456
Bugs Bunny's User ID: bbunny456

Note that the letters in your User ID are all lowercase. If you try to use capital letters in your user ID when you sign in, some systems at the college might not recognize you and will not allow you to sign in!

What is my Password?
Your password will be different for each of your student accounts.

Click each tab below to view the default password for each account.


Student Email

Your Student Email password will be your 8-digit birthdate, in MMDDYYYY format (just the numbers).
For example, if you were born January 02, 2003, your default Student email password would be 01022003

Keep in mind that resetting your password for your Student Email won't have any impact on your other student accounts. You'll need to reset those passwords separately if need be.


Canvas

Your Canvas password will be your 8-digit birthdate, in MMDDYYYY format (just the numbers).
For example, if you were born January 02, 2003, your default Canvas password would be 01022003

Keep in mind that resetting your password for your Canvas account won't have any impact on your other student accounts. You'll need to reset those passwords separately if need be.


WebAdvisor

Your WebAdvisor password will be your 6-digit birthdate, in MMDDYY format (just the numbers).
For example, if you were born January 02, 2003, your default WebAdvisor password would be 010203

When you first log in, WebAdvisor will display text telling you that the password has expired and it will have you change it to something else before you can go any further.

Keep in mind that resetting your password for WebAdvisor won't have any impact on your other student accounts. You'll need to reset those passwords separately if need be.

What is my Student Email Address?
Your student email address will be your User ID, followed by "@mycr.redwoods.edu".

We'll send all communications to you via your student email address. Your student email uses Google Services and it is created for you after your application for admission to College of the Redwoods has been reviewed and accepted.
Your student email address will be your User ID, followed by "@mycr.redwoods.edu".

For example, student "Bugs Bunny" has a user ID of "bbunny456", so Bugs Bunny's student email address is: bbunny456@mycr.redwoods.edu
