Cengage - Access Code Next Steps

You've purchased your Cengage Unlimited or individual course access code/PIN. The following information will help you identify your next steps.


Cengage Unlimited: Typically your access code/PIN will be found at the bottom of your receipt. If you purchased it online, it will be in the email receipt you received.

Individual Course Access Code: Your access code/PIN will be found in a postcard you either purchased separately or with a paper copy of a book. You will scratch the postcard to reveal the access code/PIN. If you purchased it online, it will be in the email receipt you received.


You should register your access code/PIN when you gain access to your course in Canvas. Your instructor may provide a link in the Canvas course that will direct you to the Cengage website to:

  1. Create a Cengage account or log into your existing Cengage account
  2. Register your access code/PIN

By using the link provided by your instructor, you will automatically add the textbook or other tools used to your Cengage dashboard.

If there is no link provided by your instructor in Canvas, you may need to manually add textbooks to your Cengage dashboard if you have Cengage Unlimited. Click here for directions on how to do so.


If you need help contact Kelsey Anderson, CVTC's E-Learning Specialist, at 715-833-6376 or kanderson183@cvtc.edu.
