The Faculty PeopleSoft page, showing access to Canvas and Etudes


Canvas Login ID:  SAP ID, which is the first part of their academic email address.

  • For example John Q. Smith, with the email address would have the SAP ID "smithjq"

Canvas Password:  After August 21st, faculty will be using the same password to access the new PeopleSoft SIS & Canvas.  

If they need to reset their Canvas password, they just need to follow the steps to reset their SIS password, since both systems will utilize a single-sign on.

If faculty cannot reset their own SIS password, they need to contact the IT department (ext. 2049). Campus IT will either reset their password or contact the District's SAP office, on the instructor’s behalf.

NOTE: Instructors will need to set up their SIS account first, by completing their password registration and update procedures, before they will be able to log into Canvas.

The California Community College Consortium (CCCC) ETUDES project is a community of institutions and individuals, supporting web-based instruction and expanding educational opportunities to learners through ETUDES-NG (Next Generation).

At LACC, the Teaching Learning Center (TLC) coordinates all issues related with ETUDES.

IT can not setup or update any information related to ETUDES.
In case of any problems with ETUDES, the faculty member needs to talk with TLC.

Section Setup

Each faculty member is responsible for contacting the Teaching Learning Center (TLC) to request his/her section to be included in the ETUDES system.

The Teaching Learning Center will in turn request the District Office to start sending the section/enrollment information to the ETUDES system.

Updating Student Enrollment

Assuming that the section is already in ETUDES, the enrollment for each section is updated automatically each night. If a student enrolls in an ETUDES section sometime during the day, his information will be in ETUDES the next morning.

Student Login

Even though the ETUDES student username and password follows the same pattern as the UIA accounts, they are not related.

    First two letters of your first name, plus the
    First two letters of your last name, plus the
    Last five digits of your NEW student identification number

    Default password:
    The Month and Day of your birthday, as given in the school records, with the format MMDD


The ETUDES links are located in the LACC Web site, in the Main page under the link "Academic Programs".
