Are students in a student group able to submit requests for free Education Team plans?

I’m leading the development of a student-run hackathon’s website and I created an organization as part of that process. I applied as a student group to get the free Team plan (for private reposotories) for academic groups and provided proof of enrollment, but was denied. 

Do I need to get a professor to submit a request? If not, are there common mistakes that might have caused my application to be denied?

Hi @alexieyizhe,

I think the main issue here is that we don’t currently offer free organization accounts to students (only user accounts). If you need an organization account, you’ll need to get a faculty or staff member to apply on your behalf.

I hope this helps!
