This article describes how to purchase access to LaunchPad online. Please be aware that when you purchase online, you will simply be given access to the product of your choosing. You will not receive an access code to enter later.

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 when you purchase online as you did to register for free trial access.

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.

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

If you already have an account, you will be asked to re-enter your password as below. Once you've entered your password, jump to "Click Add to Cart".

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