After you've created your account, you generally have three options for adding students:
Option 1: Give students your class code
Give the class code to your students verbally or in writing. Students can then enter the class code while they're signing up for a new NoRedInk student account, or from their homepages if they already have an existing NoRedInk account. To find your class code, log in to your account, and navigate to "Manage classes".

Option 2: Add students manually
Click on "Manage Students" and enter students' names manually into each class. This normally takes a few seconds per student. This method will generate students' usernames a default password. You'll need to communicate students' usernames and passwords to them.
- Use the option to print out login cards to easily distribute usernames
- Students can change their default passwords to a new password once they've logged in.
- Note: Using this method, students will not appear in the assignment form until they've logged in; click here for more details.
Option 3: Give students your class invitation link
An invitation link will look something like: https://www.noredink.com/join/class-code-5. To find your invitation link, log in to your account, and navigate to "Manage classes." Each student in class only needs to use this link once when first joining the class. Afterwards, he or she can simply go to www.noredink.com to log in and use the site in the future.
Once a student account is created, it no longer matters which method was used, and students can easily join additional classes and/or drop classes.

Adding students to Clever-synced classes
If your school uses Clever login service, your classes in NoRedInk could be automatically syncing with your class roster. If you see the Clever Secure Sync icon as in the image above, you won't see an option to add students. Instead, students will join your class automatically after they log into NoRedInk via Clever or your school portal. Here are step-by-step instructions for logging in through Clever.
Teachers at districts using Clever must log in through Clever in order for classes and rosters to sync properly.
