How to Activate Your LiveText Student Membership (Keycode or Purchase)

There are two ways to register for a new LiveText student account:

  • Obtain a keycode* from your school or your school's bookstore and use it to register for an account at https://www.livetext.com
  • Purchase your account directly at at https://www.livetext.com using a credit or debit card

*Contact your school's bookstore for keycode pricing information. Sometimes schools distribute keycodes to students, so you may wish to check with your school about this possibility.


Note: Before you register for a new LiveText student membership, check to make sure you don’t already have an existing LiveText student account. Having duplicate student accounts is not recommended.

If you've changed schools, you can update the school  your account is associated with by following these steps: How to Change the School Your LiveText Account is Associated with (Institution Transfers)
