Getting Started Instructions and Guides

Click it to verify your account. You should be able to now login.
STEP 2 Place an Order to Activate 24/7 Access
These steps need to be done whether you are part of a school plan or subscribing on your own. If on a school plan then the Department Head or school will receive the invoice.
1. Login to your account. Use either the View Details button in the Subscriptions and Promo box or the Pricing Plans button in the main menu at the top of the page.
