If you are a student using EditMentor for school, DO NOT create an account without your teacher's invitation access.

Your teacher will invite you by sharing an Invitation Link or an E-mail Invitation.


Invitation Link from your Teacher

Your teacher will send you an invitation link to join your school. Once you click the activation link, you'll be taken to a page where you can "Set Up Your Account". Here is where you will create a username and a password.

Make sure you include a name that your teacher will recognize. You do not need to include your e-mail unless your teacher has directed you to do so. Once you fill in your information, click "Save & Continue."

Please Note: At this time, EditMentor does not have the functionality for students to log in with a Google account. Students can use a Google e-mail address as their username, but they cannot log in directly through Google.

Set Up Your Account Page after Clicking Invitation Link from Teacher.

Please Note: If you already have an EditMentor account through your school/organization from a previous class, log into your account first, then click the invitation link from your teacher to be added directly to their classroom.

If you forgot your login information (username or e-mail associated with the account), ask your teacher to share that information with you.


E-Mail Invitation from your Teacher

If your teacher has invited you by e-mail, you will receive an e-mail from your teacher to join EditMentor. Click the activation link in the e-mail to create a password.

Check your Spam or Junk Mail folder for the e-mail invitation if you don't receive it.

The password you make is your own. Your teacher will not know it. Once you create a password, you will then be prompted to "Log In" to your account (click here to continue setting up your account.)
