Account Issues

Don't use the Powerschool App on a smart device

  • When creating your new account for MyCBE, don't use the Powerschool App on a smart device. Use either a desktop computer or, if necessary, a web browser on your phone, to access the MyCBE website.
  • The Powerschool App for mobile devices is not customized for CBE. This means users cannot use this app to access CBE's own online tools for things like paying fees or booking conferences. It's best to use the website.

Refresh your web browser if links don't work

  • If any of the links provided during account set-up do not work, try refreshing your web browser or try again in another browser.

What to do when a student was not added

MyCBE may fail to add more than one student during account creation. You will see an alert message with a notice that the student was not added. You will receive an activation email for the student. Click the link in the email to verify the information. MyCBE will add the students when the information has been verified.

 

You may manually add additional students to your account by following these steps: MyCBE - Adding Additional Students
