Note: If you've previously enrolled with free trial access, please see the help article How do I convert free trial access to full access?. Make sure you use the same e-mail address to register using an access code as you did to register for free trial access.
Note: If you are accessing LaunchPad via an LMS such as Blackboard, Canvas, D2L/Brightspace, Moodle, etc., find the instructions to link your LaunchPad to your LMS in the LMS Integration Table of Contents for Students.
Throughout this article you'll see references to LaunchPad, but the registration process detailed here is also the same for LaunchPad Solo, LearningCurve, and Writer's Help 2.0.
