4. Sign in or create an account

At this point, you will either need to sign in with an existing Pearson account or create a new one if you don't already have one. MyLabsPlus accounts from Math courses are not Pearson accounts. If you only have an account you were given in a Math course, you need to create a new Pearson account.

After logging in, you may be prompted to enter what level of study you are in and the month and year of your birth.

Do you have a Pearson account?

Yes, I have an account

Sign in with your existing Pearson username and password. If you were given a username and password to use, such as in a Math Course, you have a MyLabsPlus account and not a Pearson account so you'll need to create a new account.

No, I don't have an account

You'll need to create an account.  We suggest using your full MIX e-mail address as your username, although you can use something else if you prefer or your MIX username is not available.  You will need enter the rest of the requested information and accept Pearson's license agreement.

Not sure if I have an account
