How to Create a Student Account
School administrators can create individual student CourseKey accounts within the User Management feature in the Admin Portal. This option is beneficial for last minute additions or any time you want a fast and easy way to add a new student account.
1. Log in to your account on the web application and click on the Admin Home in the top right corner of the screen.
2. Select Users in the top navigation.
3. Select the Add Student button in the top right corner.
In the top section you'll first enter the student's name and email address. (The email address entered will be the student's username when logging into CourseKey.)
A checkbox will indicate if the student should receive a welcome email. This email will include the student's username, password, and details on how to log in to CourseKey. The box will be checked by default to send the welcome email, but if you do not want to send it you can select to uncheck the box.
Select the school that the student attends from the available drop-down menu, along with the students school issued ID number.
In the bottom section create a temporary password for the student's first log in to their account. The password must contain:
- One lowercase letter
- One uppercase letter
- One number
- At least six characters
Confirm that you've entered the correct password by entering it a second time in the additional field.
When you've completed the form, select the Add Student button to finish creating the account.
