The number one feature requested by schools has been to provide an easier way to manage student usernames and passwords. We are excited to announce a new option where students at your school can use Clever to directly login to MCIS without ever having to enter their username and password. Best of all, this integration is available for no additional cost to you.

How to get Clever

Clever is available to schools for free. Even better, Clever provides complimentary technical support to get your school district up in no time. Join the thousands of schools that have already taken advantage of Clever’s integration by going to this website: https://clever.com/signup

Already have Clever? Adding MCIS is super simple!

Use the search bar at the top to find MCIS. Once you have found the application, select: Request App. If you already have MCIS you can select the “Already Purchased” option when requesting the app.

From within your Clever Dashboard, navigate to the application overview for MCIS and download the “schools.csv” export. This file contains the school name, Clever school ID, and sis id for the schools in your district and is needed to link your active MCIS accounts with your Clever account. Email this file with the only the name of the school(s) you want activated to mcis.team@state.mn.us. If there are additional schools on the export file, please delete them.

How to use Clever to log into MCIS

From MCIS, click on the Clever link. This will take users to a secure Clever login form where students can use the same username and password they use for their school account.

 

When a student logs in through Clever for the first time MCIS will provide the option to use the student data securely provided by Clever to create a new account by simply clicking on the “Sign Up” button. Student already has an MCIS account? No problem. Use the existing MCIS credentials to login and the Clever account will be linked to the existing MCIS account. Either way, this step only needs to be done once because the next time the student logs in they will be taken directly to their MCIS account.
