New Student to WebAssign Guide
Regardless of how you access WebAssign, after logging in, you will not see your class until its start date. Check your syllabus, or ask your instructor or TA for details on your class start date.
Choose the option that best describes your situation:
My instructor has provided a class key in this format: myschool 1234 5678.
Great! Your class key enables you to create an account (or use one you already have), and you will be automatically added to the correct course and section. Enter your class key and log in.
My instructor has provided me with a username and password.
Well, that certainly makes things easy. Log in.
My class uses Blackboard.
If you are using Blackboard to access WebAssign, log in to WebAssign via Blackboard.
My instructor is using WebAssign, but I have not received any information.
To use WebAssign, your instructor must provide you with either a username and password for WebAssign or a class key, such as myschool 1234 5678.
Check your syllabus for this information, or ask a TA or your instructor.
My instructor is not using WebAssign, but I want to use it.
