Logging in and out of COTROnline

Start - set up your College Network Account:

You may watch the video above, or follow the directions below:

To access your online courses or to access course websites for your face-to-face or online courses, you will login using your college network User ID (i.e. c1234567).

To begin, ALL students are asked to go to:   https://cotr.bc.ca/login/

If you are a new student or have been away from the college for a while, start with the Change Your Password link. 

You will use your user ID for the User Name (example:  c0123456@cotr.bc.ca) and the Old Password (example:  c0123456) when you create a new network password.  

If you get an error message, please contact the IT Student Help Desk (studenthelp@cotr.bc.ca).

Change Password Screen

Once your network password is changed, you can log into everything except AccessCOTR and EllucianGo - these use your student ID, but the password needs set up separately.
