Creating your Merge EDU Account
A Merge EDU account is your key to unlocking all the interactive science simulations and digital teaching aids in Merge EDU, along with resources like activity plans and STEM projects. You’ll also need to unlock a free trial or purchase a subscription to enjoy everything Merge EDU has to offer.
In this article, you’ll learn how to:
- Create a Merge EDU account
- Join an Existing Subscription
- Create an Admin Account for a New Subscription
Create your Merge EDU account
You can create your Merge EDU account from the Merge Dashboard by going to https://dashboard.mergeedu.com/signup.
You can also create your Merge EDU account in any of the Merge EDU apps (Explorer, Object Viewer, and HoloGlobe) by tapping the "Sign up for a Merge EDU account" link on the Sign In wall when you open the apps.
If you do not currently have a subscription, you can start a 14-day free trial with Merge EDU by tapping "Continue" without a join code, then following the steps to create your account.

Join an Existing Subscription
If you are joining an existing subscription, you will need to enter a Join Code, then tap the pink arrow button.
Teachers should get a 6-character "Teacher Join Code" from their subscription's administrator, while Students will use the 5-character "Class Code" that appears when their teacher creates a Class.

Create an Admin Account for a New Subscription
The Admin account for a Merge EDU subscription acts as the central hub for the other accounts to link up to. When you’re ready to start your subscription, you’ll need to schedule an Onboarding Call with Merge. During this call, the Onboarding Specialist will direct you how to create this account and will activate your subscription.
You can reach out to Merge about scheduling your onboarding call at firstname.lastname@example.org or contacting your assigned representative.
Now that you’ve created a Merge EDU Account and joined a free trial or existing subscription, you will need to download the Merge apps and then sign in with your account.
