AgLearn/eAuthentication Account Issues

This is a friendly reminder to all of those with Aglearn accounts to remember to log in to your account every 20 days to main access by using your eauthentication User ID and password to get into Aglearn. Failure to do this can get you locked out of AgLearn. The CTD recommends setting up a reminder in your Outlook calendar.

If you are locked out of Aglearn, contact the Aglearn helpdesk, or NRCS representative listed below, directly to reactivate your account. DO NOT create a new account as it cannot be merged with the old one. You will just overwrite all of your completed work. Or try....

Locked Out? Try This:

  • Log into eAuthentication (not AgLearn!)
  • Change your password
  • Close browser
  • Open new browser session

If your eAuthentication account is inactivated or your password does not work you need to contact eAuthentication helpdesk directly.

If you do not take the Information Security Assessment, your account will be inactivated, this normally happens around April of each year.
