How do I use an activation key?

When a school purchases a subscription to IXL, activation keys may be created for their teachers. If you have received an activation key, you will use this code to activate your new account.

If you have an IXL trial account, follow these steps to connect your account to your school's subscription:

  1. Sign in to your IXL trial account.
  2. Click activation key, found at the end of the welcome message in the top banner.
  3. Enter your activation key.
  4. Click Submit.
  5. Your account is now active on your school's subscription!

IXL will automatically transfer students from your trial roster, and you can add the remaining students manually.

If you are new to IXL, follow these steps to create your teacher account:

  1. Go to
  2. Enter your activation key, and fill out the form with your information.
  3. Click Create account when finished.
  4. Your account is now active on your school's subscription, and you can start setting up your account!
