What is an activation code?
An activation code is a series of letters and numbers that identifies your school and indicates which products your students’ accounts should have access to, depending on how your school uses Fisdap. When your students set up new accounts using their activation codes, they will automatically belong to the correct school and have access to the correct products.
There are two types of activation codes: prepaid codes and unpaid codes.
Prepaid activation codes
Prepaid codes are purchased by the school and do not require payment from the students. They are formatted like this: 22-746c14377b9d9-135f. They use capital letters A through F and numbers 0 through 9. (Hint: if a prepaid activation code has a 0, it’s a zero, not the letter O.)
Unpaid activation codes
Unpaid codes require payment from the students and are formatted like this: JS-192B. The first part of the code identifies the school, and the last part of the code indicates which Fisdap products the students need to access. The dash is also important, so be sure to include that when giving this code to your students. (Another tip: all the letters should be capitalized.)
No matter which type of code you give your students, they will enter it in the same place to create their accounts. Check out the Instructions for Students to Create their Fisdap Accounts for more detailed information.
