About GitHub Education for teachers

GitHub Education offers teachers a central place to access tools and resources for working more effectively inside and outside of the classroom.

As a faculty member at an accredited educational institution, you can apply for GitHub Education, which includes GitHub Education benefits and resources. For more information, see "Apply to GitHub Education as a teacher."

GitHub Education is a portal that allows the GitHub Education Community to access their education benefits, all in one place. Once you are a verified GitHub Education teacher, you can access GitHub Education anytime by going to the GitHub Education website.

Before applying for an individual discount, check if your learning community is already partnered with us as a GitHub Campus Program school. For more information, see "About GitHub Campus Program."
