  1. I did not receive the Welcome email with my LUNA username.
    Check your spam/junk folder. The message can get filtered by various email carriers, especially if you are using a high school or corporate email address. If you have verified that the message is not in your spam or junk folders, we might not have the right personal email address for you. Please contact the Helpdesk for assistance.
  2. I already activated my account but I forgot my password.
    Go to and click on the Forgot Password link to answer your security questions and reset your password. If you are unable to reset it yourself, please contact the Helpdesk for assistance.
