Access Your Campus Learning Management System
- Head to your campus Learning Management System (LMS) home page and log in.
- Click the link for your course.
- Click any link to Cengage content to continue the registration process.
- Not sure where to click? Ask your instructor or try a few. You'll know you've clicked the right one when you see the Cengage login screen.
Be Sure to Enable Pop-Ups!
Your course materials will open in a new tab or window, so you’ll need to ensure that pop-ups are enabled.
If your browser does not have pop-ups enabled, we can help fix that!
Link Your Cengage and LMS Accounts
If you already have a Cengage account, log in now. New to Cengage? Click "Create Student Account" and register now. We highly recommend using your school email address to register.
To verify your account, open the 'Welcome to Cengage' email you just received and click 'Activate Cengage Account' to set your password and complete the registration process. Be sure to use the same device and browser to create and verify your account.
*You might already have a Cengage account if you've used MindTap, CengageNOWv2, OWLv2, SAM, WebAssign or another Cengage platform in a different course.
Linking your accounts is a one-time process. If you’ve previously completed this step for another course, you won’t be prompted to do it again.
