How to Create Student Accounts (Faculty)

As a teacher, follow the steps below to create student accounts. Note: This option is not available to Faculty if the District Administrator has turned off the ability for Faculty to create users; see Account Options under District Administrator Control.

If your district uses Clever or another automated rostering option to synchronize myON students and rosters with your student information system, do not follow these steps to create student accounts. Instead, contact your administrator if you have any changes.

If you log in to myON through the Renaissance software Home page, the "Create Student" option is not available in myON; please ask your software administrator to create students in the Renaissance software instead.

  1. On the dashboard, click Classroom, then Students.
  2. select Classroom, then Students

  3. On the right-hand side of the screen, click on + next to Create Student.
  4. select Create Student

  5. In the pop-up window, enter the following required information:
    • ID
    • Important: This must match the ID in your student information system if your myON students are synchronized with that system. If the IDs do not match, you may accidentally create duplicate students. SIS IDs must be at least 3 characters long.

      If the SIS ID or user name that you are trying to use is a duplicate, the student you are trying to add may already be on your site, and you may be able to simply assign the student to your roster. If the student doesn't appear to be in your building, and you need help finding the user who is using the SIS ID or user name, talk to your Building Administrator or District Administrator.

    • User Name
    • Password
    • User names must be at least 3 characters long and must be unique on the site; passwords should also be at least 3 characters long. Passwords are case-sensitive, so users must enter them exactly as you set them. User names are not case-sensitive. It may be helpful to check with your building or district administrator to see if they recommend specific conventions for user names or passwords.

      If your school accesses myON through the Renaissance Home page, use your Renaissance user names and passwords to log in, not the ones specified here.

      If you log in to myON at, be sure to use the user names and passwords specified here, not the ones used for other Renaissance software.
