Note 1: It might take 5 minutes for the system to update email addresses. The preferred email address is set to the last email address added. This is automatic. If you want to change the preferred email address to an older one already in the system you will need to delete that address and add it again.
Note 2: International Students who have applied to Langara through an agent might need to change their preferred email address from their agent's email address to their personal email address on the mylangara website.
Note 3: This is also useful for anyone who no longer has access to their preferred email address.
Your Student ID:
- Your Student ID is the 9 digit number that you are given when you first become a Langara student.
- This number will remain the same as long as you are a student
- If you leave and then return to the college, your original Student ID will still be valid.
- myLangara calls it a password. Web Registration calls it a PIN.
- Your myLangara password and your Web Registration PIN are the same.
- Login to myLangara using the same information you have used to login to Web Registration in the past.
- New students are given a default PIN with their registration package.
Federated identity allows a person to use the same identification data to obtain access across multiple systems. Currently Langara students can access the Translink U-Pass Compass Card system, Lynda.com and Eduroam Wi-Fi network using their Federated ID.
Your Federated ID is composed of the following:
- Your Computer User ID + @langara.ca (ex: firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Password is the same one that you use to login on campus computers (i.e., accompanies your Computer User ID)
