Reset a forgotten Canvas Password

It happens to us all - too many passwords to keep track of and an assignment is due in 10 minutes!

I will demonstrate how to manually reset your Canvas account password and get you back into you account in less than 90 seconds.

  1. Go to
  2. Click on Canvas in the top menu bar on the right hand side
  3. Below Email and Password Click on Forgot Password?
  4. Enter your worsham email address 
  5. A reset password link will be sent to your worsham email account
  6. Click on the link inside your email (some students have mentioned the reset link is in their spam folder)
  7. Enter a new password twice and submit
  8. You can now log back into Canvas with your new password
  9. Keep the new password written down somewhere secure for future reference :)
