Get my Möbius license

You might be required by your organization to purchase a Möbius license.

IMPORTANT: Do you have a 12-character access code (ExampleACSP-2021-SU01)? Access codes are usually sent to you directly by your instructor or are posted on your class announcements page. If this is the type of code you have, then check out Use an access code.

You can purchase your Möbius license in two ways:

  • By using PayPal or a credit card (with or without an existing PayPal account)
  • By redeeming a previously purchased 16-character redemption code (Example1234-ABCD-5678-EFGH)

IMPORTANT: A redemption code is a 16-character code (Example1234-ABCD-5678-EFGH) that's used to activate your Möbius account. Information about how to purchase a redemption code—if available for your class—is supplied by your organization or textbook provider.

Complimentary temporary Trial Access might also be available to you depending on your organization.

Your instructor will provide you with either a Class Link or a Möbius link within your Learning Management System (LMS) (Example — Blackboard®, Brightspace®, Canvas™, etc.).

Once you've used the provided Class Link or LMS link to access Möbius, you'll land on the User License Required page that allows access to the online payment registration form.

NOTE: You might need to create a Möbius account before you can log in. Check out Create an account. However, users accessing Möbius through a Learning Management System (LMS) won't ever need to create a Möbius account.

After completing the online payment registration form, you'll be navigated to where you can make your secure online payment, redeem your redemption code, or sign up for Trial Access.

You'll then be provided with a link to directly access your class.

TIP: Have you previously purchased a Möbius license (Example — for a previous semester) and are now not sure if your license is expired or not? Check the expiry date of the purchase code on your user profile (check out Access and edit my user profile) to see if you need to make another license purchase (remember that your purchase code can't be used as an access code or redemption code).

The expiry date of your license is shown under the "Expiry" column of the Purchase Codes pane in your user profile.

The status of your license is represented by the active icon The "Active license" icon is a green check mark.or the expired icon The "Expired license" icon is a red X..

The activation status of your license is shown under the "Activated" column of the Purchase Codes pane in your user profile.

In some cases, the status of your license might not be accurately represented by the license status icon (Example — the expiry date has passed but the active icon is still be displayed). You'll then have to access your class in order for the license status icon to update.
