my email :


We apologize for the wait. We are experiencing longer wait times than usual.

Unfortunately, we do not have an average wait time to share. Our verification team will contact you once they have reviewed your application.

We thank you for your patience.


sorry for my bad @ericdrosado

Hi Sourabh,

I know you must be frustrated but you must also understand that the student pack is a privilege, it’s a free resource pack and the team that work on manually verifying student memberships don’t only work on this task.

There are thousands of students that use and apply to use the SDP and this can sometimes take some time to be verified manually. It also depends on where you application is in the processing queue so it’s not always possible to give you a timeline like Eric said.

Please be mindful that what might seem long for you, 10 days, might not be that long for someone with hundreds of requests waiting to be processed.

As students, myself included, we are lucky to have such resources available for free, so please respect the work and the time of the people and teams that make this possible.

Hope you get access soon but please also be mindful of others,


No worries, hopefully you get it soon!


i hope so i apply again yesterday

Hey , I’m from Poornima College Jaipur. I have a simple student mail like in end and I got accepted for SDP . Mine take around 2-3 weeks . So it’s normal for having such wait times !!


i will apply after the second request rejected still lets wait

I have applied twice and have been rejected twice. I sent a screenshot of my enrolled program page and was rejected and then sent my transcript and was rejected. I go to school online at University of Phoenix and do not have a student ID card. I am also using a email address and still rejected.

Hello, My name is arsalan and i’m student of artificial intelligence at PIAIC it has been 8 days+ since I applied for the GitHub student developer pack (I applied Mar 18, 2020 ). I applied with a valid student portal account and with my name and a valid date. Is there a reason this is till pending? I haven’t received any emails yet. Thanks a lot.
