Users with Admin access within Discovery Education can bulk import teachers, students, and classes into Discovery Education. If you are able to pull teacher, student, and class data from your data management system into a .CSV file to use with our Bulk Upload Tool, this is your best option.
If you are the school/district administrator, but do not have a My Admin tile on your My DE homepage, please call 1-800-323-9084, prompt #1 or email firstname.lastname@example.org so they can transition your account to have Admin access.
Note: If you are not able to access this data or complete a bulk upload at this time, accounts can also be created manually.

Bulk Import Process
Access the Admin Portal by clicking on the My Admin tile on your My DE homepage.
From the menu on the left, click Tools and then select Bulk Import Tool. From here, you have four different uploads you can select from. Each upload provides a template which will give you the column headers needed for your CSV file.
- If your teachers used your school passcode to create an account, you do not need to complete a teacher import and can begin with the student upload.
- The student upload will generate student accounts for all students submitted in your spreadsheet.
- Once your teachers and students are loaded, you can decide if you want to complete a class and roster upload or not. This upload will generate classes within Discovery Education as well as add students to those classes. The templates will guide you through the requirements for each file. If you prefer, teachers can create their own classes manually and add students to their classes.

Bulk imports generally take about 24 hours to process. You can check on the process using the Import Status tab on this page. For additional support on creating a CSV file, read our CSV Import Quick Start Guide.
Note: Usernames across Discovery Education must be unique. So, you may find that some do not import because the username is already taken. You can either adjust these and complete the bulk import again with just those few - or manually add those student accounts.
