Use a school email address to sign up

To keep Flip safe, students should sign up and join groups with a school email address. 

Important: If you're an existing student and can't access your groups anymore, this means you are signed in with a personal account and need to sign in with a school email instead.

If you received a message asking if you're a student, that means you tried to sign in with a personal email. To join a group or topic, make sure you sign in with a school email.
