VHLCentral HELP TOPIC: Brief Registration Instructions for Instructors/Teachers


In order to create and manage courses/classes for your textbook's Supersite, you will need an account and a Supersite code. Or if your Modern Language Specialist emailed a temporary username and password to you, then your account is ready to use. You may log in at any time and do not need to create a new account.

If you have an existing account for VHLCentral, for your textbook's Supersite, or for another Vista Higher Learning textbook, complete these steps:

  • Go to VHLCentral: http://vhlcentral.com
  • Log in using your existing account information.
  • To redeem a new Supersite code, click the "Redeem a code" link on your VHLCentral account. Then complete the items below in "Step 3 - Activate Code" of the NEW USERS section.
  • To add a school to your account, click the "Add/Remove a school" link on your VHLCentral Home page. Then complete the items below in "Step 4 - Select a School" of the NEW USERS section.


If you are new to Vista Higher Learning, complete these steps:

  • In the “Personal Profile” section, enter your first and last name as you wish them to appear to your students.
