Returning WebAssign Users

If you have not signed in to WebAssign after September 2017, you might need to link your WebAssign account to a Cengage account.

Don't try to link your accounts if you have previously linked them or if you sign in to WebAssign through a school portal or learning management system (LMS).

If you do not have a Cengage account, create one before attempting to link your WebAssign account.

Before you create a new account, make sure you do not have an existing account.

Note Before your students can purchase access:
  • Your WebAssign and Cengage accounts must be linked.
  • Your students' WebAssign and Cengage accounts must be linked.
  1. Go to

    2. Enter the email address associated with your account.

    1. Type your Cengage Account Email—your username, even if it is not your email address—and Password.
