Why wasn't my application for a student developer pack approved?

Review common reasons that applications for the GitHub Student Developer Pack are not approved and learn tips for reapplying successfully.

Tip: As a student or faculty member at an accredited educational institution, you can apply for GitHub Education benefits, which includes access to GitHub Global Campus. Global Campus is a portal that allows the GitHub Education Community to access their education benefits—all in one place! The Global Campus portal includes access to the GitHub Education Community, industry tools used by professional developers, events, Campus TV content, GitHub Classroom, and other exclusive features to help students and teachers shape the next generation of software development.

Antes de solicitar um desconto individual, verifique se sua comunidade de estudos já não é nossa parceira como uma escola Programa de campus do GitHub. Para obter mais informações, consulte "Sobre Programa de campus do GitHub."

Unclear academic affiliation documents

If the dates or schedule mentioned in your uploaded image do not match our eligibility criteria, we require further proof of your academic status.

If the image you uploaded doesn't clearly identify your current academic status or if the uploaded image is blurry, we require further proof of your academic status. Quando você se candidatar novamente, faça upload de uma imagem do ID da sua escola, do histórico acadêmico ou de outros documentos que sejam uma comprovação do seu status acadêmico, mostrando pelo menos uma data.

Nota: os arquivos PDF não são suportados e você não pode carregá-los como prova de afiliação.

Using an academic email with an unverified domain

If your academic email address has an unverified domain, we require further proof of your academic status. Quando você se candidatar novamente, faça upload de uma imagem do ID da sua escola, do histórico acadêmico ou de outros documentos que sejam uma comprovação do seu status acadêmico, mostrando pelo menos uma data.

Using an academic email from a school with lax email policies

If your school issues email addresses prior to paid student enrollment, we require further proof of your academic status. Quando você se candidatar novamente, faça upload de uma imagem do ID da sua escola, do histórico acadêmico ou de outros documentos que sejam uma comprovação do seu status acadêmico, mostrando pelo menos uma data.

Nota: os arquivos PDF não são suportados e você não pode carregá-los como prova de afiliação.

If you have other questions or concerns about the school domain please ask your school IT staff to contact us.

Academic email address already used

If your academic email address was already used to request a GitHub Student Developer Pack for a different GitHub account, you cannot reuse the academic email address to successfully apply for another GitHub Student Developer Pack.

Note: It is against the GitHub Terms of Service to maintain more than one individual account.

If you have more than one personal account, you must merge your accounts. To retain the discount, keep the account that was granted the discount. You can rename the retained account and keep your contribution history by adding all your email addresses to the retained account.

Ineligible student status

You're ineligible for a GitHub Student Developer Pack if:

  • You're enrolled in an informal learning program that is not part of the Programa de campus do GitHub and not enrolled in a degree or diploma granting course of study.
  • You're pursuing a degree which will be terminated in the current academic session.
  • You're under 13 years old.

Your instructor may still apply for a GitHub Education discount for classroom use. If you're a student at a coding school or bootcamp, you will become eligible for a GitHub Student Developer Pack if your school joins the Programa de campus do GitHub.
