  • If you've enrolled with free trial access, you will ultimately need to register again with an access code you've purchased from your bookstore or by purchasing a subscription online. Upon registering again, you must use the same email address that you used with free trial access. If you do not use the same email address, all the course work you've completed will be lost.
  • Please be aware that you will simply be given access to the product of your choosing; you will not receive an access code to re-enter at a later date.
  • For more information on what to do after your free access has expired, see How do I convert free trial access to full access?
  • Throughout this article you'll see references to LaunchPad, but please know that the purchase process detailed here is the same for LaunchPad Solo, LearningCurve, and Writer's Help 2.0.
