Can students log in to Lt without an access code? - Grace Periods

After accepting their Lt invitation, in most cases yes, a student can log in to Lt thanks to a 21 day grace period.

What is a grace period? +

A ‘grace period’ is defined as a 21 day period of Lt access granted to students upon their first Lt login. The grace period allows a student to use Lt for 21 days before they are required to enter an Lt access code

Note: If student access to Lt is not via access code, i.e. your institution pays for access for students, there is no grace period. 

When does a grace period start? +

The grace period starts when the student has accepted their Lt course invite, logs on to Lt and selects ‘Enter Code Later’ when prompted for their Lt access code.

How long is the grace period? +

The maximum grace period available is 21 days. A student can enter an access code anytime within this 21 day period.

Who does the grace period apply to? +

The grace period is for student users of Lt only and applies to any student who has not yet entered an Lt access code. This is to ensure students can access course content if they’ve not yet obtained a scratch card or access code. Such as in the case where a student plans to change their schedule or drop a course, as ADInstruments won’t refund used codes.

How does my student know my grace period is over? +

The remaining time of a grace period is displayed to students within their course dashboard in Lt and if they select ‘Enter Access Code Now’ from the dashboard, as seen below.
