Did You Know?

We know that as an educator who is registered for StudentEdge, you are always looking to give your students the best resources, especially when it comes to their college and career planning. That's why we're bringing you this new email that will provide a tip each week on getting more out of StudentEdge. Forward it to your students and their parents or even let them know in class how they can get registered and take advantage of StudentEdge's many free resources.

This week's tip:

Did you know that StudentEdge has free, online homework help for 12 different subjects? These detailed, interactive modules can be reviewed any time of the day and are even correlated to major textbooks. To get there, log in to StudentEdge and click on the Homework Help tab.

Get your students registered:

Your school's unique access code is PTZGFZSM. Students, parents, and other educators at your school will need to enter this code just one time when they register for their free StudentEdge account.

Registering is easy.

Once registration is complete, users have full access to all of StudentEdge's tools and resources.

Don't have the access code handy? Don't worry, it is also possible to look up your school's access code right on the site.

If you have any questions, please call your account manager at 888-892-6288 or email us at studentedge@petersons.com.
