Login and Access Your Chaffey Network!
At Chaffey we use specific systems to provide you with access to registration processes, online classes, and academic support. The following systems are those you have a username and password.
The MyChaffey Portal is the central place for students to access all systems at Chaffey. This is where Student Self-Service is located, which is where you register for classes, check your class schedule, grades, etc. Students have a dedicated LaunchPad to access student email, Canvas, and other academic services.
We use Canvas as our learning management platform, which connects you to your online course(s), instructor(s), and fellow classmates! From within Canvas you will be able to access and complete coursework, engage in discussion forums, participate in real-time meetings, and so much more! Once you login to the MyChaffey portal you will see the Canvas icon on your LaunchPad.
Any student registered in a credit class will be assigned a Chaffey email account. Once the account is created, the student will have access to that account via the MyChaffey Portal. Student emails are composed with your first name initial, last name, and last for digits of your student ID number. For example, firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, your student email uses the Google email interface for easy-to-use navigation.
