Existing Student Account

Link Student With An Existing Account Via Class Code

Looking to add students to your class that already have Prodigy accounts? Class codes are an easy way to have your students link their account to yours when they register. You may also have the students asking "What Is My Class Code?"

Please Note: This article is for students already registered with Prodigy. To pair students with new accounts using class codes, click here.

What is a Class Code? 

A class code is a set of letters and numbers unique to each registered Prodigy teacher account.

It can be located on your teacher "classes" page by following these instructions on your desktop browser:

1. Upon login, click on your menu in the top right.  You'll then see your classes page, where the Class code for each class can be located at just under the title for your class.
