You will either be provided a Class Key to enter during registration, directed to log into your school Learning Management System (LMS) and register through the WebAssign link in the course, or be automatically enrolled into your course.

If you’ve purchased your textbook and WebAssign access before logging into your Cengage account, you’ll receive an Access Code via email or printed on a card (if you’ve chosen a print textbook).
Once you’ve logged into WebAssign, you’ll be able to enter your access code to show that you’ve already purchased a code and be provided access to the course. Please be sure to enter your code exactly as printed, including spaces. This code grants you access to your book and resources in WebAssign.
