Join a class

To use Classroom, you need to sign in on your computer or mobile device and join classes. Then, you can get work from your teacher and communicate with your classmates. When you join a class on one device, you're enrolled in that class on all devices.

How to join a class

You have 2 ways to join a class:

  • Join a class with a class code—If your teacher gives you a class code, use this code to add yourself to the class. Your teacher might give you the code while you’re in class, or email the code to you.
  • Accept an invitation from your teacher—If your teacher sends you an invitation, you’ll see Join on the class card on your Classroom homepage.

Forgot or lost the class code? Code won't work?

If you deleted, lost, or forgot the class code before joining a class, ask your teacher to resend the code or set a new one.

Note: You only use the class code once to join the class. You are then enrolled in the class and you don't need to re-use the code again.
