New Student Welcome Page



Welcome and congratulations on your acceptance to the NEW Virginia Marti College of Art and Design. We are thrilled that you will be joining our VMCAD family!

This New Student Welcome Page is designed around you, helping to uncover the answers to the questions you have, and providing you information about campus resources, programs and services.

Where Should I Start?

The first thing you want to do is be familiar with how to log into your VMCAD email, Student Portal, and Canvas, the online learning management system. The instructions on how to log into these systems have been sent to both your personal and VMCAD email. Or you can use the Technology Quick Reference to guide you.

If you need additional help to check your VMCAD email, logging into Student Portal or Canvas, please call the College at 216.221.8584 or email our System Support, Ms. Margery Sponsler at

What's Next?

In preparation for the start of the quarter, it is important that you complete the VMCAD Student Orientation Winter 2018 course on Canvas (you will have to log into Canvas first). This training course is mandatory for all students, whether you’re attending class on campus or on-line only. At the end of the course there is a checklist that will help you to assess how well you’ve absorbed the content.
