If you are still have problems, please go through the following steps:

  Are you a currently enrolled student?

  • The default password expires after about 18 months.  So try updating your password.

  • Include the numbers after your name.

  Did you shorten your login to the first 20 characters?

  • You can email the GC help desk at or call (619) 644-7742 and leave a message.  Your call will be returned as soon as possible.
