Uploading your Syllabi to SharePoint

At the beginning of each semester all faculty are required to upload a syllabus for each course section taught. To upload your syllabus go to www.lacitycollege.edu and click on "For Faculty & Staff" at the top. Scroll down to academic affairs section, and click the red "academic affairs" link.

In the top right click on "sign-in", your name should appear in the top right corner. Note: if you see a message such as "access denied you do not have permission to perform this action" or "access this resource" that means you have not yet signed in. If so go back to the previous step.

Once you have signed in on the left look for the current semester and click "upload syllabi". Click the "add document" link. Click "Choose file" and navigate to where you have saved your syllabus. Double-click your syllabus, then click "OK".

You must click on the drop-down and select your correct section number then click "check in". The process is done when you get a message that your syllabus was successfully uploaded.

Troubleshooting tips: if you are unable to sign in make sure you are using your network password. If you need your network password reset call IT at extension 2049.

If you are at an off-campus computer make sure you add "LACC_mail/" to your username. For example: "LACC_mail/username". This step is required for you to log into sharePort from a non LACC computer.

Switch browsers. For example: if using Safari, try Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Chrome or vice versa.

If you have reset your network password and still need help uploading your syllabus contact Adrian Brown at extension 2480.
