Accessing Your QuickBooks Online Trial

If your instructor is providing you with the trial software, you will get a link to access it so skip Part 1. When you have the link, go to Part 2. (High school & middle school students: Your teacher will give you the link.)

Note! Labyrinth does not provide support for QuickBooks software.

If you're obtaining the trial software yourself (your school does not provide it), you will do so via SheerID. Most students are instantly verified. If not, or if your school is added as a custom school, you will go through a second-level verification process that can take about 20 minutes.
