Answer

If you are taking a class that requires you to enter MindTap for assignments, there are a couple things you will need to do first!

  1. Use an appropriate browser. We recommend Mozilla Firefox (it seems to work best with the MindTap program).
  2. Make sure the pop-up blocker is removed. See instructions 
  3. Click the link your instructor provides in the Blackboard course to access the MindTap portal. 
  4. Create an account with an email address to enter your course in MindTap.  You will need to enter an email address (typically you will just use your school email account) and a password for the MindTap account, check and agreement box and then click to create an account.  Once you've completed these steps, it will bring you to a new page where you can enter your Access Code
  5. Go to the Redeem access code section on the page and enter your code that is located in the cover of your textbook. **Please be aware that you need to have a NEW textbook, not a used copy, in order for your access code to work**. If you have a new book, but your access code is still not working, you will need to contact your instructor for help.
  6. After your access code is accepted, you will be able to enter your course and access your homework assignments in MindTap. You will not need to enter your access code again. Your Blackboard and MindTap accounts will be synced so that you will not need to log in or enter your code again.
