Free Certification for Student

I have signed up in MongoDB with my GitHub Student Account. Is it right that I can get free certification if i have signed with student account?

Here is a link to the MongoDB Student Pack.

Free certification means, I think, free registration to take the certification exam. Normally there is a fee to take the certification exam.

Hi @Prasad_Saya, that’s correct :slight_smile:

Once you’ve completed one of our Learning Paths, you’ll receive 100% discount to the exam.


Hello @Lieke_Boon

is this discount bound to the student program or does this count in general?

Hi @Alex_Beckham

Welcome to the forum!

That’s correct. It might change in the future, but at this moment we offer the free certification temporarily now that most schools & universities are closed. We don’t know when the COVID-19 pandemic will end, but we’re expecting that this situation will last for a while longer, and we’re not planning on changing this offer in the close future.

So Which Certificates do we get for free

Both Exams Listed here

Both have price tags of 150.00 USD , this price will be forgiven , Just asking

Hi @Alex_Beckham I’m pretty sure that the voucher is only for a single exam. You would have to choose between the DBA or the Developer certification.

If my understanding on that is incorrect then hopefully @Lieke_Boon will come by soon and correct me.


That’s correct @Doug_Duncan, thank you!

Once you’ve completed one of our Learning Paths , you’ll receive 100% discount to the exam. So it’s either for the DBA or for the Developer certification exam.


@Lieke_Boon , Please could you explain how to request a 100% discount? I completed the “Developer Learning Path” using my Github Students pack
