This password information applies to students accessing Etudes for the first time. Changes you make to your account, including your password, will persist to new semesters.

On your first log in you will be required to create a new, secure password.

Contacting Your Instructor

If you need to contact your instructor prior to the start of class, use the LACC Employee Directory.

Note: It can take up to 24 hours after you add a class for your account to become active in Etudes.

If you are able to log on to the system but cannot access your course, verify that you are on your instructor's Etudes site info roster. There are occasional delays between updates on the official roster and the student accounts on the Etudes site. The instructor will be able to tell you if you appear on this roster and the official username you should be using to log in.

For difficulties that cannot be resolved by your instructor or using the system requirements information pages contact Etudes support
