To sign in with your existing account, open the Schoology app on your mobile device:

  1. Tap Sign in through my school to sign in through your school or district.
  2. To Sign in through my school, use the keyboard to enter the name of your school or organization. As you type, matching choices populate in the list. If your school uses a custom domain (URL) on the web version, you can enter the domain in the search field.

Tap the arrow to continue to sign in through your saved school. To change the school or organization to sign into, tap the search field, and begin typing the new name. Matching choices will populate as you type.

For Enterprise users signing in via

  • Single sign-on (SSO)

To sign in with your existing account, open the Schoology app on your mobile device.

Note: If you are are not included in the school’s single sign-on method (SSO), choose to Sign in with my account instead. 

  1. Tap Sign in through my school to sign in through your school or district.
  2. To Sign in through my school, use the keyboard to enter the name of your school or organization. As you type, matching choices populate in the list. Organizations using single sign-on sign in have a green dot displayed next to their title.
  3. Tap the name of your school or organization when it displays.
  4. Tap Go To SSO. The SSO login screen displays automatically. If you use Google SSO, skip to Step 6.
  5. Enter the username or email address and password associated with your account to complete sign in. If you can't remember your sign in credentials, check with your instructor or a Support Contact at your school. 
  6. Follow the remaining steps if you use Google SSO. 

    Note: If you use Google SSO to sign in to Schoology, do not tap Sign in with my account; this takes you to a Schoology email and password sign in page instead of the Google sign in screen. Users who are not part of the organization's SSO can choose this option instead.

  7. If this is your first time signing in, enter the email address connected to your Schoology account. If you’ve previously signed in on the device, tap the name of the auto-populated account that you use to sign in to Schoology.   


    Note: If you select the wrong account in this window, you will have to close the Schoology app and log out of the incorrect Google account from the internet browser on your mobile device before you can complete the sign in process.

  8. Enter your password and tap Next. This will log you into both your Google account and into Schoology. If you sign in using an SSO and are using a shared device, be sure to log out of your account on the mobile browser when you log out of Schoology. For example, if you use a Google SSO, navigate to Google on a mobile browser and log out of your Google account. Logging out of Schoology will not log you out of your Google account.
  9. Tap Approve to authorize the Schoology mobile app to access your Schoology account. Click Deny if you do not want to authorize the app. You will not be able to use the mobile app until you have approved the app to access your account.

The next time someone opens the Schoology app on the mobile device, the same school or organization displays as the default, including your SSO screen. This makes it easier to sign in on your own device and is useful if your school uses shared devices.

Note: If you sign in using an SSO and are using a shared device, be sure to log out of your account on the mobile browser when you log out of Schoology. For example, if you use a Google SSO, navigate to Google on a mobile browser and log out of your Google account. Logging out of Schoology will not log you out of your Google account.


Tap the arrow to continue to sign in through your saved school. To change the school or organization to sign into, tap the search field, and begin typing the new name. Matching choices will populate as you type.
