How do you plan to use ?

Hello Sir, My name is Karan( your name ) and I am a student of class 11 computer science(Enter your academic details) from Delhi Metro College ( Enter your college ). I recently came to know about the GitHub Students developer pack from twitter. Sir, I am a computer science student and this pack is completely worth for me. As I am learning frontend web developing this pack can help me get courses for free. Sir, but my poor bad luck. I dont have a .edu email as our institution doesn’t have any mailbox. Sir, please I can provide you proof of my certificate and Identity Card of my institution if required. Sir, this pack will be great for my further learning and projects in frontned web development. I will get a domain name with digitalocean and aws educate. This will be awesome for me to host my codes and make my website go live. Please Sir, I really require your help. Thank You Sir. I am waiting for your further replies.

Submit your information then.

After completing this you will recieve an email to upload proof of your institution.
Simple just take a snap of your front and back of you Identity Card and upload it to GitHub. They will verify you within few hours. Remember don’t upload expired academic details. Or you will recieve rejection. Your academic details should be atleast one year or six months left to be expired.


Also, if you have been provided with a college specific email ID from your university this much of a paragraph wouldn’t be required. Basically just write what you have been working on and what you plan to do further (3-4 sentences would suffice).
Take the above stated paragraph by @TheSpecialOne as an example and write in your own words. Simple and efficient.

Thanks @TheSpecialOne for the post. Hope it will be helpful to other users.:slight_smile:


Yes i forgot to add this but if .edu emails from GitHub verified University or colleges it just takes 2-3 hours to verify.


Nice tutorial :slightly_smiling_face:, sometime it takes more than a week.


It doesn’t :laughing: if you follow this. It minds how much you write what you write.


Thanks alot @TheSpecialOne , it only take me a couple second to become member github student education by using my edu mail.


How were you able to get a edu email. Can you link me and help me get one? Thanks so much.


Here is the topic.


do you upload real .edu or ID Card?


I have .edu email but it’s asking for student ID, what should I do to get it without student ID


You can’t do anything… Only if your college is linked with GitHub the edu email will be qualified else you cannot.


I also have mail account but no ID card. Is there any way to get this package with fake ID card?


Thanks. I got mine by this method.
Once again thanks a lot.


i don’t remember how i found this forum,but i should’ve discovered it sooner.
Thanks(i got my pack from your advice)


So I applied and waited for days but upon receiving the email yesterday unfortunately my application wasn’t accepted. I used mail for the application.

Any advice which edu mail works best for fast approval?

Thanks in advance.

Don’t use any fake edu email. Use your own email address and upload your real id card.

Students from which stream are eligible for this offer? From where can I get sample documents from eligible university which are required for approval. I want to do some photoshop from an graphics expert friend of mine.
