Thanks for joining this thread, Matheus.

To be able to register in QuickBooks for students, you may need to have your educator sign up for the product first. Welcome emails with forms are sent after your educator's registration. After that, have your teacher email the completed form to with each student's name who wants to use QuickBooks.

Here's how:

  1. Go to the Intuit Education Program website.
  2. Select the Sign up for free.

  3. Fill up the form, then click Verify and continue.


If your educator can’t find their school on the list during registration, the school may be new to our program and not on-boarded yet. Have them send an email to including the name of the school. The Education Team will confirm if the school qualifies and add them to the list.

Once completed, your teachers will send you a link where you can activate and register your account. For detailed information, kindly refer to these articles:


Additionally, I'll also share these articles that can serve as your reference to learn how to get started with QuickBooks:

Hello there, @Angel1761. I want to ensure you'll be able to create a company in QuickBooks Online (QBO).


To verify, could you tell me if you receive any error messages when attempting to log in to the QBO account? That information is a great help so I can provide a timely solution. 


In the meantime, we can perform some troubleshooting steps to determine if this is a browser-related issue. Let's start with attempting to log in via an incognito browser to have a clean slate. Below are the shortcut keys you can use:


  • Google Chrome: press Ctrl + Shift + N
  • Mozilla Firefox: press Ctrl + Shift + P
  • Microsoft Edge: press Ctrl + Shift + P
  • Safari: press Command + Shift +N


When opened, check if you can now sign in to the QBO account. If this works, go back to your regular browser and clear the cache to eliminate piled-up data that might caused the issue. If not, you can utilize another supported browser or device


You can also check with your instructor or course material and verify the correct credentials to log in. For reference, check out this article: Register and activate a QuickBooks Online student trial. 


Once you logged in successfully, you can use this link as a reference in setting up your retail company: Add a new company.


If you have any other concerns about accessing your QBO account. I'm just around the corner to help. Have a good one and stay safe.

I am a teacher / educator and registered for QB online and was using it for approx 1 year but today it says I need to resubscribe and won't give me access to my 2 companies I set up. Why? Is there a glitch or some setting that needs to be corrected? I couldn't get anyone from Intuit QuickBooks on the phone to provide support. Thank you.
