Hi @keovkevin - You should receive a message from GitHub Education via email.

Got it. Thanks for the reply.

Hi @arelia!

Like Kevin, I also recently applied to the student developer pack. I’m registered for Flatiron School’s In-Person Web Development Immersive course and recently applied for the developer pack. It offers a few resources that would be beneficial in getting better at coding. I used my Flatiron School email address, so I hope that is alright. Thanks for your help!

Best,

Alex

Great @alexanderchao123!

The team generally reviews requests for the GitHub Student Developer Pack in the order received. Processing typically takes a few days, but may take longer in peak periods such as the start of a new semester. You should receive a response to your application soon! If you have other questions please email education@github.com.

I know this is reather late but I applied for the student developer pack on December 21st, 2019 and I still haven’t gotten a response yet also.

Hi @arelia ,

I applied for the Github student developer pack on 10 Feb 2020, its been 2 days and I haven’t got any response yet. I’m from Nepal so my school doesnot provide email to students. I submitted my ID card issued by my school. The date on the card is according to Nepali Calander (ie Bikram Sambat B.S.) 

I hope I’ll get a response soon!

@arelia It’s been nearly 10 days now and still I’ve got no response from GitHub! What shall I do now? Don’t you think it’s taking much longer than it should take for a company like GitHub to just confirm weather a person is student or not? At least an e-mail showing the progress would be appretiated!

@arelia

For me its 25th day, but if I may Know average wait time or progress email, Then it would be appreciated!

I’m facing the same problem. I’m from Nepal too and it’s been 15 days since I applied for the student package using the email address my university provided. The status is still pending. Maybe it’s the issue with the date, or probably just the number of students applying for it that’s taking a long time. I have sent an email to education@github.com regarding this issue. Hopefully they will acknowlegde it.

Hello,

I have applied for Student developer pack on Mar 18, 2020, the status is still pending. I have applied via valid collage issued id with the valid date written on it. (I didn’t have any other document which has current date.), It has been more than 26 days.

I am a Master Student from 2017and until now i did not get the degree because it takes time to done.

Kindly help.

I am facing the same problem too. My request is showing pending and I’ve applied Jul 19th. My college doesn’t provide any student email so I’ve provided the id card my college given to me
