If your section is linked through Clever for Districts or Canvas, please reach out to or your Customer Success Manager for assistance.

Inviting Students to Join Your Section

  1. From your Teacher Page, click on the section that you want students to join.

  2. Under How Students Can Join this Section, you'll find two ways that students can join your section: 

  • Click Invite Now to send your students an email link to your section. You will see pending invitations in your roster.

  • If students do not have access to email from outside accounts, you can instead share the URL found on the right side with them.

click on your section name and click the Invite Now button to email a link to your students

After using the signup link, students will be prompted to sign in or create an account on CodeHS. Students will be able to confirm the section, course, and teacher information before joining.

Students must enter the class code in the prompt box when joining

Your Class Code can be found in the invitation link or next to the section name on the Roster or Teacher page:

Find the Class Code in the title bar for the section, or at the end of the invitation link

Note: students in Google Classroom sections will NOT be given a class code - see this article for more information on managing a Google Classroom section roster.

Inviting Students to Join Additional Sections

If students need to join another section, they can join using the invitation link mentioned above, or they can go to and enter the class code for their new section:
