WebAssign Grace Period

Students can use WebAssign without payment during the WebAssign grace period, which starts when the course is available and lasts up to 14 days depending on the length of the course.
Note Because of the grace period, don't set the class start date earlier than you expect your students to start accessing your course. Usually this is the actual first day of class.

During the grace period:

  • Your students can complete their coursework in WebAssign.
  • At the publisher's discretion, they might also have access to the eBook for your class, if one is available.
  • Each time your students access your class, they will be reminded to purchase access or enter their access code.
  • No payment method is required.

After the grace period, all of your students' work is still available to you. To continue using Cengage, your students must either purchase access online or enter a valid access code.
