How to sign up your org

Sign up to create an account for your organization

Creating an account for your organization (or org) is simple! All new accounts go through a verification process before given the ability to send out digital credentials.

Navigate to Create an Organization form

If you already have an account with Merit, log in here and access the Create an Organization form in the profile menu on the top right corner of your header.

If you're new to Merit and don't have a personal account yet, click on Get Started on the merits.com landing page. You'll be navigated to a page that asks you to select an option that best describes you. Click on the Create an organization button.
