How to Create a Student Account
School administrators can create individual student CourseKey accounts within the Student Management tab. This option is beneficial for last-minute additions or any time you want a fast and easy way to add a new student account.
Note: If you have several student accounts to create you may want to consider creating the accounts in bulk. Check out this article for additional information:
School administrators with permissions can access the Student Management feature within their CourseKey account. To access select the Users tab in the left navigation bar.
In the top right corner you'll see a green button "+User". Select the button to choose the option Add Student.
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.
If you've chosen not to send a welcome email be sure to make note of the password entered so it can be communicated to the student.
When you've completed the form, select the Create User button to finish creating the account.
