Student Account Claiming (Grades 6-12)


Students in Grades 6-12 may claim their NCEdCloud IAM Service accounts if instructed to do so by their teachers or school administration.  The process is outlined below.

Claim Your Account - Student Option

After going to, students will click on the Claim My Account button (circled in blue above) in the middle of the login buttons.

You will then see the Claim Account Policies form with the default setting of LEA Employee Claim Policy. If you are in grades 6-12 and have been instructed to claim your account through this process, you will need to select the LEA Student Claim Policy from the Claim Account Policies screen.


After selecting "Next", the Claim Account process involves three (3) more screens: The Student Claim Form - where you enter some information about yourself; the Set Password screen; and the Challenge-Response Security Questions screen where you answer 5 or more of the questions presented. Before claiming your account you can watch the Claim My Account video, which walks you through the process.

Note:  Students will enter their their state pupil number, grade, birthdate and LEA/Charter School 3-digit code. For most LEAs, the Pupil Number is the 10-digit number (some students have a shorter number) that you use to log into the student system. When entering your birthdate, the format is YYYYMMDD with no dashes or slashes. Also, you will need your 3-digit LEA Code. Also make sure to click on the "I'm not a robot" checkbox before hitting "Next".


The 3rd Claim Account screen asks for you to enter a valid Password for your account, which must meet the requirements listed to the right.

The last screen asks you to select Challenge questions (security questions) and enter answers that will be easy for you to remember (but don't change frequently).

NOTE:  If at any time the "Next" button doesn't work (remains "grayed out") then the information you entered is either in the wrong format (such birthdate) or may be incorrect in the source system (See Account Claiming Issues for help).

It is VERY IMPORTANT you DO NOT BOOKMARK the login page you see when you go to my.ncedcloud.orgIf you try to go directly to the Login Page without accessing or one of the Cloud Applications first, you will get an error message. 

If you are all set and have the required information to enter in the screen, then click the Claim My Account button on the login screen at
