What is an Authorization Code?

Authorization Codes are unique alphanumeric codes sent to every CALI member school and organization.  They are only used during the creation of the user account.   After that account is created, you never need to use or remember the authorization code again!  You'll use your self-created username and password to log into CALI after you create your account.

There are two different authorization codes for each school - one for faculty and one for students.  The CALI website has special faculty-only features, including answers to CALI lessons.  Therefore, only faculty should use the Faculty Authorization Code.

CALI is unable to give out your institution's authorization code over the phone or email.    We have a list of contacts that are authorized to hand out the code.  Alternatively, check with your library...they usually have the code available.
