Registration Instructions

4: In the “Verify your new CampusGroups account” email will be a confirmation link, click that, then close the page after it finishes loading (it will say “Thank you, you verified your email address successfully. You can now sign in.” Don’t worry, you don’t need to sign in.)
5: In the “Sign In Code” email is a six-digit code. Take that six-digit “Sign in Code”, enter that on the original CampusGroups page (the one that you hit “Next” on).
