Email Verification

Email Verification

We require a verified email address before you may access our courses and labs. Additionally, some courses require enrollment using an email address from an approved academic institution in order to enroll and use certain labs.

To verify you are the owner of the email address, we send you a special Verification Key, which you then submit to a form on our website.

Manage Email Addresses 

To manage email addresses in NDG Portal, select the Account tab and click on Manage Email Addresses.


In the Manage Email Addresses window, you will have an overview of the email addresses associated with your NDG Portal account. If the email has been successfully verified, a green "verified" icon will show next to that email. Emails that pass the academic verification process will have a blue "academic" icon. To make an email the Primary email, select the green up arrow button. To delete an email, select the red "x" button. 

In order to add an email to your NDG Portal account type in the new email in the Add Email Address field and click the Add Email button to save all changes. 


Please check the newly added email inbox for a Verification Key to proceed with the verification process. If you do not see the email in your email inbox, please check your Spam or Junk folder in case it was sent there instead.


Type the Verification Key into NDG Portal Email Addresses window and click the "Verify" button.


If you see an error regarding academic email verification when enrolling, the system does not have a verified academic email on file for you to proceed. In this case, you will need to add an academic email to your account as shown above before proceeding.
