Learn to ship software like a pro. There’s no substitute for hands-on experience. But for most students, real world tools can be cost-prohibitive. That’s why we created the GitHub Student Developer Pack with some of our partners and friends: to give students free access to the best developer tools in one place so they can learn by doing.

GitHub will consider any documentation you provide. If they cannot accept your uploaded proof on your first attempt, you will receive an email asking you to submit supplementary information.

My application wasn’t accepted. What should I do?

Rejections are part of our life you should not lose your hope. You may need to provide additional documentation before they can approve your application. A common problem is that the uploaded proof was outdated, or the photo was too blurry. Regardless of the reason, they will try to provide context so that your next application has a greater chance of success.
