2. Your email account was created with 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.

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

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

b.) If you added more than 3 days previously, submit a trouble ticket by clicking on the word HELP on the canvas homepage (ilearn.laccd.edu) and then click on REPORT A PROBLEM.
