How will the Campus Administrator notify the campus community about the website-based group online subscription?

The Campus Administrator receives detailed sign-up instructions when an institution purchases a site license then distributes these instructions to eligible subscribers campus-wide by email, by posting on an internal intranet, or including in an internal newsletter. You will get the most out of your subscription by disseminating the sign-up instructions at the beginning of each new semester.

I would like to create an account but I don’t know the Authorization Code.

Your group’s Campus Administrator will provide this information to you. If you don’t know who the administrator is, email  For security, we will forward your email request to your Campus Administrator. You need to use the Authorization Code just once, when you first create your account. You will then log in using your email address and the password that you create to access your online subscription.
