This article will provide instructions for adding Non-Google students to your imported Google Classroom. If you need help with Google Classroom integration, please check out this guide instead.

Because of how Google integration works, you cannot directly add new students to a Classroom you've imported from a Google Classroom if they are not existing students in the Google Classroom to begin with. However, if you absolutely need to add non-Google Classroom students anyway, there are two workarounds.



Using the "Move/Copy" Tool


First, create a new classroom and student, or locate the student in an existing classroom. Next to the student's name, click the dropdown arrow and select "Move/Copy".



Then, select the imported Google Classroom you'd like to move the student into.



Voila! Your student has been added to your imported Google Classroom. Please keep in mind that they will still need to use their original login method to access their account; they will not be able to log in with Google unless their Boom account was already connected to their Google account.



Using the Classroom Join Settings


Alternatively, your non-Google student can join your class by logging into it with either the Classroom URL or the Classroom Code and password. As the teacher, you will first need to change your imported Google Classroom's settings to allow new students to join. You can easily change your classroom settings by clicking the blue "Settings" button in the right corner of your classroom information.



Currently, students can join classrooms in three ways: Boom, Google, or Microsoft. If you change this option to "Locked", it will lock your classroom and prevent students from creating their own account.



Once you have updated this setting to allow students to join, you will need to provide your non-Google student with either your Classroom URL or the Classroom Code and password. The student can enter the Code and password on the student sign-in page.


Depending on which join option you chose, your students who log into your classroom will see corresponding buttons to create an account and join your classroom. The Google and Microsoft options will prompt students to enter their Google or Microsoft login credentials to create their new Boom account.



After they complete the sign-up process, you will see them appear as a student in your imported classroom's roster.
