Joining (and leaving) a Class

How to join a class on

To join your teacher's class, you will need an invitation from your teacher.


Get an invitation: Ask your teacher to send you an invite via email, or to print you out a handout with the class invite URL.  The class invitation is just a special URL that you can paste or type into your browser. 

  • Once you’ve received the link from your teacher, either click or type the class invitation URL into your browser. Class invitation URLs are in the form of (replace ### with the code unique to your class). You must type in the full URL to join the class.
  • If you are not currently logged in, you’ll be asked to either sign in or to register for a free student account.
  • Once logged in, you’ll see a yellow bar at the top of the screen saying you have joined the class.

Or request to join the class: If you know your public class page URL, and you see a green Ask to Join This Class button at the top-right of your screen, you can click it to request to join the class.

After clicking on the link to join the class, your teacher will be notified that you have requested access.

We suggest that you let your teacher know you have requested access so they can approve your access the next time they log in.


Leaving a class

If you want to leave a class that you accidentally joined, look for the Leave this Class button near the top-right of the class page.  When you click the button, you will no longer be in the class.

Be careful, if you leave a class and you don't still have your class invitation, you will have to ask your teacher for a new invitation to join the class.
