Hello GitHub Education!
Thanks for the wonderful assistance you provide us in our daily job.
At the end of this strange 2020 course as every course I create the GitHub organizations and GitHub classrooms for the incoming course and apply for GitHub benefits. I did it on July 12 2020.
Days passed without getting a response. I’ve been doing this for many years and usually GitHub answers in a short time. So I wondered If something went wrong and cancelled the submission and resubmitted again on July 16. Here is a screenshot of the associated benefits page:
Today I received 5 or 6 emails from GitHub Education ( firstname.lastname@example.org) one per 2020 organization. Curiously not for the older organizations. Here is an excerpt:
Occasionally it is necessary for us to ask you to reverify your current academic status to continue receiving your GitHub Education benefts. Now is one of those times.
There will be no interruption to your GitHub access, provided you are successfully reverifed within the next 30 days . However, if you are a member of the GitHub Student Developer Pack you must be reverified before your access to the partner offers is restored.
I don’t know what is wrong with my submission and why my account can not be verified.
Both times during submission the app complained the photo of the ID card was already loaded and so I took a new photo, in spite that the ID Card is valid up to 2023.
I wonder what is wrong with the renewal request
