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.

Go to the course-specific URL provided by your instructor

Alternatively, go to the LaunchPad website and follow the instructions to find your course.

Select "I have a student access code"

Enter your student access code exactly as it appears (including all dashes)

Click Submit.

Enter your e-mail to see if you already have an account

Click Submit to check whether you already have an account on one of our sites.

If you have an account, you will be asked to re-enter your password as below. Once you've entered your password and clicked Submit, jump to Click "Join Course".

If you don't already have an account, you will be taken to the terms of use. If that's the case for you, continue to the step below.

Read and agree to the Terms of Use

Enter your name, choose a password, and click "Register"

Passwords must be at least eight characters long, and include at least one capital, one lowercase, one special character, and one numeric character.

Click "Join Course" to confirm this is the course you wish to join

If this isn't the course you meant to join, click join a different Course.

When accessing your new course you may find a Join Course button that is light green, meaning it isn't active. If this happens, check to see if you're being prompted to enter your campus LMS ID.
