How to Email Your Instructor in the Student Portal

The LACCD Student Information System (SIS) Portal features a new way for you to contact an instructor directly with class questions or to request a permission number for a closed class. 

You can now send an instructor an email using Outlook or the email applications that you are currently using through the "Search for Classes" page in your Student Portal.

Follow the steps below to access the instructor email hyperlink:
