CREATING A txCONNECT ACCOUNT
CREATING A txCONNECT ACCOUNT
To create a new account, you will need your student’s Portal ID. The Portal ID is different for every student. If you do not have your student’s Portal ID, you will need to contact your student’s campus to request the Portal ID.
Please note, parents will need to set up their account using the email address the campus has on file. Failure to do so will prevent parents from being able to sign up for electronic report cards and interim progress reports (IPRs). It will also keep the parent from updating student information when this feature becomes available later this school year. Starting for the 2017-2018 school year, all student registration will be completed through your txConnect account. If you have changed email addresses, you need to notify your child’s campus so they can update it in their system.
From the txConnect Login page, click the link under New txConnect User to go to the Registration page. To have a successful account, you must have a valid student portal ID and correct date of birth for every student you want to add to your account.
Create a User Name (NOT case-sensitive) and password (IS case-sensitive), confirm the password and enter your current e-mail address. For parents, the email address must match at your student’s campus to successfully link your student. Click Next.
In the Question field, select a question to which you will provide an answer.
This question will be asked in the event that you lose your password. The answer IS case sensitive. Click Next.
Enter the Student Portal ID. The student portal ID must be typed exactly as it is printed (i.e., uppercase and lowercase letters)
Enter the Student Birth Date in MM/DD/YYYY format (e.g.; 01/19/1998). Click Add.
Your student’s name appears in the Added Students box on the right side of the page.
Repeat step 3 to add another student, or click Complete. Once you click on complete, the Summary page opens indicating that your account was created.
* You will immediately receive an email with a Registration Security Key.
From the Summary Page, click on the My Account tab.Under Email Address, enter the verification code from the email you received and click on Verify Code. You must enter the exact registration code in the field in order to complete the registration process and be able to receive electronic report cards/IPRs and edit student information. The easiest way to enter the code accurately is to copy it from the e-mail message and paste it into the field.If your email address at the campus does not match the email you entered, you will receive a message stating "Your email address does not match an email address associated with this student" under the Edit Student Settings link. You will need to contact the campus to update your email address in order to complete the registration process to be able to receive electronic report cards/IPRs and edit student information.If the email address DOES match the email on file at the campus, you will see a message that says "Your email is registered to this student" and you will be able to receive electronic report cards/IPRs and edit student information when available.
