Logging directly into Blackboard

Logging into Blackboard for the first time is a 4-step process. Please adhere to the steps below, and do not skip any steps. After you complete these initial steps, you can simply access your class by logging in from the Blackboard login page.

If you had a Blackboard account from a previous semester (at either LPC or Chabot College), your login information remains the same.

  • If you were enrolled in a previous Blackboard course at LPC, your login will allow you to access Blackboard, but you should not be able to access any old courses.
  • If you happen to forget or misplace your W number, you can always obtain it by logging into CLASS-Web with your old Student ID number and clicking the “What is my W ID” link.
  • Important: If you added a course late, there might be a 1-day delay from the time you are officially enrolled in the course and your Blackboard account is created.

Step 3: Change your password

Once you log in, you will arrive at your My Institution page. Click Personal Information on the left, then Change Password. Enter a unique password that you will remember in the Password and Verify Password fields (read more information about choosing your password). Click Submit.
