STUDENT E-MAIL NEWSLETTER
The Office of Student Development uses e-mail to send out weekly newsletters and timely
announcements to Louisiana College students. The e-mail list is comprised of the Louisiana
College assigned e-mail address for each enrolled student. To ensure that you receive
these important announcements, please check your LC e-mail throughout the semester.
If you would rather use your current e-mail account (Hotmail, Yahoo!, etc.), simply log in to
your Louisiana College e-mail account and set the “forwarding” preference so that LC e-
mails will forward to your preferred account. The directions for this process are listed below.
Your Louisiana College E-mail Address
The Office of Information Technology assigns each LC student an e-mail address following
his or her initial registration at the college. Students previously enrolled at LC should
already have a LC e-mail address, and first-time students and freshmen e-mail addresses
will be created after registration.
The Office of Information Technology uses the first initial and last initial of each student and
the last four digits of his or her social security number followed by “@lacollege.edu” to
create the e-mail accounts. The password is the student’s six-digit date of birth.
Name: John Mark Doe
Student ID: 1234567
Date of Birth: January 1, 1986
For any questions about your e-mail address, contact the Office of Information Technology
Change Your Mail Forwarding Information & Password
You can have LC E-mail System Messaging automatically forward your mail to another mail
account. You can also change your password and user preferences using this same process.
Go to http://mail.lacollege.edu/ and log into your account using the username and password that
IT assigns to you.
