When you log in to your ALEKS account, you arrive at the Student Account Home main screen and have the following options available to you:

Account Settings
To access the account settings, click on your name in the upper right corner of the Student Account Home main screen. This screen displays information both for the umbrella account and for the college that you attend. This information includes your name, the Login Name for the umbrella account, the account Password (hidden), and the email address linked to the account. You can edit certain entries by clicking on the Edit link to the right. To return to the main screen, click on the Done button.

Adding a New Course
You can add a new course by clicking on the button Sign up for a new class (Fig. 1). You will be prompted to enter the course code for the new course and then purchase a new access code. Once the new course has been added, it will be displayed in the ACTIVE section on the Student Account Home main page, along with any other active courses.

Active Courses
All courses in which you have an active account will be listed here. You will see the name of the course, the name of the instructor, the date you last logged in to the account, and the date your access to the course will expire. Additional information can be accessed by clicking on the Show more link, including the Course Code, the Reference ID for the account, the date the account was started, the amount of time spent in the course, and the current level of progress.

Inactive Courses
The INACTIVE section will display a list of your courses that are no longer active. The same course information that is displayed in the ACTIVE courses is available here.

Accessing a Course
You can access an active course by clicking on the course name. You will be taken to your pie chart for that course and will be able to work on topics. To return to the Student Account Home main screen, click on your name in the upper right corner and select the Account home option. To completely log out, choose the Log out option after clicking on your name.
