How do I add a student who already has a Sumdog account?


If you have a student who has recently moved to your school from another school and already has a Sumdog account you can link their account to your school.

This means they will not lose any progress and can use the same login details. 


To transfer a student from one school to another:

1) To Be Done by Old School Teacher

To move the student to your school, the teacher at their old school would first need to remove them from their school. To do this the old teacher should:

  • Log in to the teacher account
  • Select Settings at the top
  • Click on MANAGE in the Manage student box
  • Find the student and either drag them into removed students or click their name and click remove from school


2) To Be Done By Student

Once the student has been removed from their old school they will be able to request to join your school. To do this the student would need to:

  • Log in and go to their profile page (top right corner in the Sumdog house. panel with their animal rank)
  • Click join a school
  • Type the new school's school code

(You can log in and get the school code under Login Settings on this page:


3) Current Teacher to Approve 

Once the student has sent the request to join your school, you will need to approve them To do this you will need to:

  • Log in to the teacher account
  • Select Settings
  • Click on MANAGE in the Manage student box
  • On the bottom left of the class roster page click on 'Show filters and Search' you will see a pop-up box saying 'XX students is waiting to join your school'
  • Click on the pop-up box
  • Tick the names of the students and click on Accept into school 
  • You can then select which classes you would like to place the students into and click OK
  • Click Save Change to add them


If the student has a family account that is not connected to a school they need only follow step 2.
