Unfortunately the sorting hat does not determine your house––you get to determine that for yourself. Head into the common room to meet your fellow Gryffindors, Ravenclaws, Hufflepuffs or Slytherins.

Purchase your textbooks from Flourish and Blotts and sign up for classes. You can take two approaches to your studies: either enroll in a full Year One course load or peruse the classes at your own pace. If you want to earn points to help your house win the coveted House Cup, then you’ll need to enroll in the courses and complete the assignments for grades.

You can choose to enroll in Potions, Charms, Transfiguration, Astronomy, History of Magic, Defense Against the Dark Arts and Herbology. Each course includes nine lessons which involves reading, writing essays and taking quizzes and exams. Every professor can nominate two students to take on the role of Head Boy and Head Girl after the course is completed.

Once you’ve completed the Year One courses, you can continue progressing through the rest of the seven years until you’re officially a graduate of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

If you are not interested in academics, you can still get the Hogwarts experience by focusing on the role playing portion of the site. Current role playing groups include games that take place in the Great Hall and on the Quidditch field.
