You can invite students to enroll in your class in 3 ways:
- Send an invite link—Students click the link to join.
This feature is rolling out over the next week.
- Send an email invite—Students can join from the email or in Classroom.
- Share a class code—Students enter the code in Classroom.
If students have trouble with the link or code, you can reset them, or send students an email invite instead.
For instructions to join a class, students can go to Join a class as a student.
Note: Students can unenroll themselves from classes. If they unenroll, their grades are removed.
Each class you create has an invite link. You can share the link with students so they can join your class.
On the class card, click More Copy invite link
Paste the link into an email for your students.
When students get your email, they click the link to join your class.
You can send an email invite to individual students or to a group of students. Students can accept the invite in the email or in Classroom.
Note: To invite a group of students, you can use the email alias for the Google Group. You don't have to be a member or owner of the group, but you must be able to view group members and email addresses. If you can't view this information, ask your administrator to change the permissions.
