Overview

Sometimes you'll need to transfer students within your own classes, transfer them from another teacher at your school into your class, or even transfer them from a different school where they previously used Membean. This article will explain how to transfer students who already have a Membean account. If a student doesn't have a Membean account yet, they can simply enroll into your class.

Transferring Students with an Account at Your school

You have access to all of the students with accounts at your school even if they are not enrolled in one of your classes. To transfer a student who already has an account at your school, follow these simple steps:

Step 1: From your teacher dashboard, scroll down until you locate the "Transfer/Drop a Student" widget, and begin typing the student's name in the field.

Step 2: Click Transfer when the student's name appears. 

Step 3: Use the drop-down menu to select the class you wish to transfer the student into, and click Transfer

You will see a green banner indicating the successful transfer.

Students can also transfer themselves to a different class right from their dashboard. They should click change under the name of the class they're currently enrolled in. 

Once they click change, they will be prompted to enter the new class code. Once they click Join Your Class, their account will be transferred. Click here for instructions to share with your students.

Transferring Students with an Account from a Different School

Since Membean is a multi-year program, it's best if students continue with their old account rather than creating a new one. The easiest way to transfer a student to your school is to have them go through Membean's standard enrollment process, during which they'll be asked if they already have a Membean account. When they click Yes, I've used it last year they'll be able to log in with their old credentials and transfer to your class.  

In order for the transfer to go through, the student will need to log in to their old account. This means they'll need to remember their old login information. If they do not remember their password but had an email associated with their account, they can click Forgot Password? to reset it. If they don't have an email associated with their account or can't remember it, please email support@membean.com, and we will transfer the student for you. 

Once a student transfers to your school, their username will automatically change to reflect your school code. For example, if Harry Potter were to transfer from Hogwarts to Durmstrang, his username would change from harry_potter_hogwarts to harry_potter_durmstrang

If your student used Membean last year but created a new account, you will need to contact support@membean.com to delete the duplicate.
