Student Registration Tips
Where do I get the class registration code to register?
Only students with a registered teacher can play Budget Challenge. You can obtain your class registration code from teacher.
Why did I not receive my confirmation email?
Make sure you have spelled your email address correctly with no typos. If there is an error in the email address, you will not receive the confirmation email. Change to: If you find an error in your email address, you will need to create another student account using a different user name and password and correct email address.
If your email address had no typos and you still have not received your confirmation email, ask around in your class. Did the other students get their confirmation emails? If they did and you did not then check your SPAM (JUNK) folder. If they did not either, discuss the issue with your teacher as it could be related to restrictions on your school email server.
