Logging in and out of COTROnline


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 (example:  c0123456) as both the User Name and the Old Password to create a new network password.  If you get an error message, please contact the IT Student Help Desk (studenthelp@cotr.bc.ca).

If you were a student during the past semester, you can go directly to the Portal, Webmail, or COTROnline and use your network password from the last semester.
