Link Your Cengage and LMS Accounts

To link your Cengage account with your campus LMS account, log in using your Cengage account information.

  • You may already have a Cengage account if you’ve used MindTap, CengageNOWv2, SAM, WebAssign or another Cengage platform in a different course.
  • Don’t have a Cengage account? Create one by clicking “Create an Account.”

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.
