Manually sign up for Quill

Go to Quill's sign-up page and enter your first name, last name, and email, and create your own password.

Find and link your school to your Quill account. Use either your school name or zip code to search for your school.

Tip 💡 This is a very important step, as the school link is what grants your Quill account Premium status.

Manually log into Quill

To log into your Quill account, you will navigate to this login page, enter your username and password, and click the Log in button.

Manually create classes and roster students

Navigate to the My Classes tab. Click the green Create a class button to get started.

In the form that subsequently appears, name your class and select your class' grade level. The class is assigned a random and unique two-word class code. If you’d like to reset the code, click the green Reset link. Lastly, click the Create class, next button.

Next, you'll see two options to add students to your class.

Option 1: Invite students to create accounts for themselves

Choose the Students create their own accounts option to get a unique link to share with students so that they can create their own usernames and passwords. This option is recommended for students who are familiar with creating accounts on websites.

Click the Copy button to copy your shareable link and share it via email, add it to your learning management system, or write it on your whiteboard. When students visit this link, they will be asked to create a Quill account and will be automatically added to your class in Quill.

Option Two: Create accounts for students

Alternatively, you can choose the Create accounts for students option if you would like to add students by first and last names and have Quill generate a username and password combination for each student.

When you select this option, add each student with their first and last name and click the Add button. When you click the Add button, Quill will generate a username that follows the pattern firstname.lastname@class-code and a password that defaults to their lass cap Once you have added all of your students, click the Next button.

You can then download a PDF document with students' usernames and passwords by clicking the Download PDF button for the class. Lastly, click the Done button to finish creating this class.

How students manually log into Quill

To log into their Quill accounts, students will navigate to this login page, enter their username and password, and click the Log in button.

If students forget their usernames or password, teachers may access their usernames and passwords in the My Classes tab of their Quill accounts.

In the My Classes tab, click on the class whose students' usernames and passwords you would like to see. Then, click on the Download student log-in instructions button to download a PDF of students' usernames and passwords.
