I’ve been asked to reverify my student status for some reason even though I’ve been verified with my edu email before. I have sent a screenshot of my college’s portal with my logged in status visible as a proof document, which is acceptable, according to this page,
The timestamp is visible from my computer but for some reason my document has been rejected as missing a timestamp.
What kind of timestamp do I have to provide in order for my document to be accepted?
We ask students and educators to occasionally reverify to insure they still qualify for GitHub Education Benefits.
We ask that the date on the submitted document be a reflection of the students current academic enrollment. So, a timestamp on a document or a date when a transcript was printed, would not qualify. We need the date to support that you are currently enrolled in classes. A document with a class schedule that clearly shows the date range of your course would be helpful or even an academic ID with a date that shows how long it would be valid for.

Thanks for your quick response!
This is what I’m reading on the first link that you sent me:
I’ve marked the text I am referring to with a red square. I uploaded exactly that but it was rejected as missing timestamp. So the timestamp needs to be inside the portal?
Generally speaking, a screenshot of just a student portal would not be enough to prove academic enrollment. I would recommend reapplying with a dated student ID, weekly schedule, or transcript of your current enrollment.
