DOE Student Accounts

Instructions to Create a Student DOE Account

Instructions for students to create and access their NYC DOE Accounts has previously been emailed to students but this page provides a further overview.

The Department of Education has issued these accounts for students to access TeachHub which provide access to applications and a new student email ending in "@nycstudents.net". This email account can be accessed through https://teachhub.schools.nyc or https://www.gmail.com.

The new "@nycstudents.net" email account is tied to a Google account and it will be used in the fall and beyond for students to access Google Classroom, Drive and Gmail.

The Department of Education has recommended that schools transition over to these student email accounts and phase out any existing email accounts (i.e. "@veritas.nyc" accounts) because they provide secure access to multiple applications and the same login credentials provide access to report cards and other information.

The page linked below explains more about these new accounts and provides instructions on how to create them:
