SFCC Online

On May 20, 2019, State Fair Community College will introduce CANVAS, the new online Learning Management Software (LMS). Canvas will replace the current LMS (Blackboard). Courses that start with Blackboard prior to May 20, will continue to use Blackboard until the end of that course. No course will switch to Canvas during the semester. SFCC is committed to ensuring the transition to Canvas is a success.

As we transition to Canvas, it is important to note the following:

  1. Canvas will be used for the Summer and Fall (2019) semesters.
  2. All users can expect to receive email alerts for Canvas accounts and course enrollments. These emails will come from the Canvas Instructure system (notifications@instructure.com). It is important that you check your Inbox and Clutter or Junk Mail folders, just to be safe.
  3. The credentials used to log in to Canvas will change in May. Users will no longer use their nine digit ID Number to access online courses. Details of your new username, along with log in instructions, will be provided when access is granted.

If you have any technical questions or concerns please call the Help Desk at 1-866-295-3070.

Just log in and learn. That’s how easy it is to take our online courses. Instructors cover the same content as in on-campus classes; the only difference is that you do the work using a computer and the internet without coming to campus.We offer more than 260 online classes, plus two complete degree programs online. You can:

  • Take courses both online and on campus to complete degree requirements
  • Access course syllabi and information, post comments and turn in assignments from anywhere you have access to a computer and the internet
  • Connect directly with online instructors and advisors when you have questions or concerns
  • Complete an Associate of Arts transfer degree or an Associate of Applied Science degree in Business Management completely online


Classes are delivered 100 percent online. Your instructor may meet students face-to-face for an initial session, and testing may be at a proctored site. The material you cover is the same as if you took the class on campus.


Classes combine classroom and online coursework, and typically meet only once a week on campus.


Your instructor uses the Web as an additional resource for a class that meets on campus.

  • State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA)

    State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) is a national initiative to provide more access to online courses while maintaining compliance standards with state regulatory agencies. SARA allows institutions to provide online courses outside of their own state borders by seeking and maintaining state approvals via a streamlined process.

    On Nov. 16, 2014, the state of Missouri was approved by the Midwestern Higher Education Compact (MHEC) to join SARA. On March 11, 2015, the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) approved SFCC for institutional participation.

    Current authorized SARA member states include:  Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
