    What to do if your login fails

    If your account was created, you can use the RESET PASSWORD / FORGOT PASSWORD routine.

    Tutorial Link: How do I reset my password?

    Your default email account in Canvas is your LACCD student email. So if you did not add another email and change your notifications, use your LACCD student email with the password reset functions.

    Tutorial: How to Log Into Your LACCD Student Email

    If the password reset function does not work, take the following steps:

    i. If you just added within 48 hours, try to log in on the third business day after adding.

    ii. If you added more than 3 days previously, submit a trouble ticket by clicking on the word HELP on the Canvas homepage then select REPORT A PROBLEM.

    NOTE: Canvas accounts are created AFTER students are actively registered in a course and not just when given a registration number during the enrollment process. Students who are standby status on a course waiting list will not have an account created in Canvas until the add is processed. Accounts are available on the day following official registration into a course as active student.
