Canvas Instructions


We are using Canvas by Instructure to access courses online. Read the differences below and then go through the Canvas Orientation.

Note: The following are the NMJC differences for Canvas.  

  • Use your student ID and PIN to login to Canvas; If you are unsure of your Student ID, look for your Student ID on any NMJC business correspondence or call Enrollment Management at 575 492-2587
  • To change your password, login to the T-BirdWeb Portal > Student tab > Change PIN.
  • The only way to be added to an NMJC course is to register for the course.
  • Your online course(s) will be available on the first day of class and not before. Until then, you can go to the Live Course Schedule, find your course(s), note the CRN(s), Term dates, and then click on the course name to view the course syllabus.
  • Canvas suggest that you use the most current web browser and Flash add-in, older browsers do not function well. Click here for details.
  • Check here for basic computer specifications for Canvas. Chrome Books and NetBooks do not run all of the Apps used in many courses; use a supported PC or Mac.
