  3. At the beginning of Registration you will be asked for your Class Code. The Class Code is supplied by your instructor. Enter this in the spaces provided, on the left-hand side of the window, and click on Continue (Fig. 2).
  4. Next, ALEKS will check whether you have ever used ALEKS before. Check the appropriate response and click on Continue. If you have used ALEKS before, you will be prompted to enter your ALEKS Login Name and Password before moving on.
  5. Enter your personal information and choose a Password. Supplying an email enables your site administrator to help you with problems more quickly. You will also be able to enter your Student ID number.
  6. At the end of registration you will be given a Login Name. You will need the ALEKS Login Name and your Password to return to ALEKS.

    Your Login Name and Password can be typed with upper- or lower-case letters. Neither may contain spaces or punctuation. If you forget your Password, click on the link Forgot your login info? located underneath the Password field on the ALEKS Home page.
  7. You will need to wait for your instructor's authorization before starting to use your new account. If you need to log off now, you can log back on later using your Login Name and Password. As soon as your instructor authorizes your registration, you will be able to start using ALEKS by beginning the Tools Tutorial.
