3. Enroll in your first course

When you sign into your new Saylor Academy account, you will find a blank student dashboard. Any courses you enroll in will appear here for quick access. Use the course catalog to find your course and then find the “enroll me in this course” link in the Administration menu or use this resource in our help center. You can enroll in as many courses as you like, although we recommend one or two to start.
