  • Registering for Zinc via SpringBoard

    Welcome SpringBoard users!  

    We've streamlined the Zinc registration process.  Go ahead and follow the steps below and you'll have access to the Zinc platform within minutes:

    1. Login to your SpringBoard account. 
    2. On the SpringBoard dashboard, click the Zinc tile.
    3. Once prompted, fill out the form in the middle of the resulting page.  

    Note: you'll need at least one active class on your SpringBoard account to use Zinc - it's ok to create a dummy class and remove once your real ones are in place.
