Account Setup: FAQ

  • If I setup my account using my laptop or desktop computer, can I still get Schoology on my smartphone or tablet?

    • Yes! If you setup your account using your laptop or desktop computer, you can download the Schoology app to your mobile device and simply login using the same account credentials you established when you created your account.

  • I have more than one student in the district; do I have to make an account for each child?

    • No! Once you have created your account, you can use the parent access code for each of your children to add them to your profile. More information on how to do this can be found HERE.

  • Can my spouse/significant other use the parent access code to create a parent account for my child?

    • This depends. If the person is listed as a parent or legal guardian of the child, then yes. If they are not listed as a parent or legal guardian, then we advise against sharing this information.
