The Temporary Access Code received during orientation does not add an additional two weeks to your account.This code gives you temporary access to ALEKS for a two-week period. Once the code expires, you will be locked out of your ALEKS account until you purchase a regular Student Access Code. You may purchase the ALEKS Access Code at BC Bookstore or Online from McGraw-Hill.
It is highly recommended that you purchase the Student Access Code BEFORE the two weeks expire to prevent interruptions with your ALEKS account.
Click on the "SIGN UP NOW!" link located under the login box on the left of the page.
Enter your Course Code in the box labeled "Using ALEKS with a Class?" and click on "Continue."
Verify that you are registering for the correct course and click on "Continue." Enter the 20-character Temporary Access Code.
Continue with the registration process until your account has been set up successfully.
After you complete your account set up you will be logged into ALEKS and can immediately begin working in the course.
You can extend your ALEKS account at any time by clicking on "Extend access" and entering a purchased Student Access Code. If your temporary access expires before you purchase a Student Access Code, simply log in to ALEKS and you will be directed on how to extend your current account. You will then be able to continue your course where you left off before the temporary access expired. You do NOT need to create a new ALEKS account to continue your course.
