SIMnet Self Registration

Self Registration Guide

If you have not yet purchased a registration code from your bookstore, you can pay for registration online using a credit or debit card or a PayPal account. These steps are almost identical to the self-registration process except in this case, you will enter credit or debit card information to complete your registration. Once you make your selection from the
Login page, follow the prompts on screen to complete your registration.
Confirm school and username

Confirm your school

Be sure to double-check that you are using the correct SIMnet website for your school. Select the Yes radio button to confirm you attend the school. If the school name on this screen is not the school you attend, you are likely using the wrong website. If you aren't sure which URL is correct for your school, contact your instructor.


Select the No radio button to confirm that you do not already have a SIMnet user name. (If you have a username and password already, please log in to SIMnet and enter your registration code in the space provided on the Profile page. Continuing through the registration process will result in a duplicate account.) Click Next to continue.
Terms of Use

Agree to Terms of Use

Review the McGraw-Hill license agreement. Click the Check this box if you agree to the Terms of Use and have reviewed the Privacy Center check box, and click Next to proceed.
Select a campus and class

Select a campus

If necessary, expand the Campus list and select the correct campus to view the list of classes on the selected campus.

Enroll in a class

Click the name of the SIMnet class to enroll in, and click Next to continue.
Note: If you are not sure what class to select, click Next without making a selection. After you complete registration, you can log in to SIMnet and go to the profile page to select a class, or you can ask your instructor to enroll your SIMnet student account in the correct class for you.
Select a product

Select a product

Select the SIMnet Online product you want to purchase, and then click Next. If you are not sure which SIMnet product to purchase, check with your instructor or your class syllabus. Your page will probably display a much shorter list with only the product or products that your school uses.
Enter your Account Information

Account information

Enter your SIMnet registration information, and then click the Next button. All the information must be entered before you can complete registration. Your email is required so the system can send you your username and/or password if you forget them. The Student ID is used as a unique identifier for each student account. Some instructors require students to use their real student ID numbers, so SIMnet grade book records can be matched with other class records. If you are unsure what to use for your Student ID, check with your instructor.
Success: Remember that your instructor will see all of your personal details in the grade book and SIMnet reports. Use something appropriate and matches your school registration information.
Select method of payment

Select your payment method

Select your method of payment – either a credit card (or debit card that can also be used as a credit card) or a PayPal account. Click Next. (If you select PayPal as your payment method, the button will appear as the orange PayPal Pay Now button instead of Next.)
Enter payment information

Enter payment information

Credit Card
If you selected a credit card, enter the required information. The credit card payment information and billing address are not saved to the SIMnet database. This information is only used to process your SIMnet payment. It is not visible to your instructor. Enter your information, and then click the Buy button to complete the purchase process. Be patient. The system may take a few minutes to process your payment. Do not click the Pay button more than once, or your credit card may be charged multiple times.
If you selected PayPal, you will see a PayPal log in screen. Enter your PayPal username and password, and click Log In. The SIMnet system does not keep or track your PayPal log in information. Confirm your PayPal payment information, and then click Pay Now.
Purchase confirmation


This confirms your purchase and SIMnet registration. The system will also send you a receipt via email (using the email address you entered as part of your SIMnet registration). You will not receive a registration code – your account is created automatically for you. Click the Return to SIMnet button to return to the main page where you can now enter your username and password to log in to SIMnet.
