      Make sure your keyboard’s Caps Lock is not on. Remember that your username and password is case sensitive. The username, in most cases, will be all lowercase. Double check your email.

      If you’re still getting access denied, you will have to get your password reset. Please contact TSG by emailing from your FAU email address. Please include in your email that you need your password reset on lamp. You need to also include the name of the class your in and who your Professor is.
