Account Settings
To access the account settings, you can click on your name in the upper right corner of the Student Account Home main screen. The account settings display information for both the umbrella account and 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 Class
You can add a new class by clicking on the button "Sign up for a new class" (Fig. 4). You will be prompted to enter in the class code for the new class and then purchase a new access code. Once the new class 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 Classes
All classes in which you have an active account will be listed here. You will see the name of the class, the name of the instructor, the date you last logged in to the account, and the date your access to the class will expire. Additional information can be accessed by clicking on the "Show more" link, including the Class Code, the Reference ID for the account, the date the account was started, the amount of time spent in the class, and the current level of progress.

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The INACTIVE section will display a list of your classes that are no longer active.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

Accessing a Class
You can access an active class by clicking on the class name. You will be taken to your pie chart for that class and will be able to work on topics. To return to the Student Account Home main screen, you can 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.
