New to Lanier Tech?  That's great!  We're happy to have you as part of the Lanier Tech Laker family.  This article should give you the basic information you need to get started.


Here are the first steps you should take:

  • Get your Laker Login (username/Email).
  • Change your password by logging into Student Email.  The initial password is your date of birth. For example, January 3, 2002 would be: Jan032002. BEFORE YOU CAN ACCESS BLACKBOARD OR BANNERWEB, you MUST change your password away from the initial password. Login to Student Email or use a computer on campus to change your password. This is a one-time requirement to change it AWAY from the initial password.
  • Setup required Multi-Factor Authentication (starting July 10th, 2019). 
  • Register for password recovery.  This will make sure you can reset your own password, even when the IT HelpDesk is closed.
  • Read all about the July10th changes that have just gone into effect!
