Welcome to participants of the GitHub Student Developer Pack program

Welcome! This category is a place where you can ask questions about the MongoDB benefits associated with the GitHub Student Developer Pack program.

What is it?
From the GitHub Program Page: “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.

What is MongoDB Offering As Part of the Program?
You can learn more about the MongoDB offering on our program page but in short, here are the benefits of participation:

  • MongoDB Atlas Credits
  • MongoDB Compass
  • MongoDB University On-demand

What if I have a question?
That’s what this forum category is all about. Ask away! Someone from the community, or from MongoDB will gladly answer your question.


Thank you for the Pack.
I have a problem with activating MongoDB University On-Demand. I go to /profile page and click the button ‘Access Activate MongoDB University On-Demand’ and nothing happens.
Also, I couldn’t find applying license key feature on MongoDB University site.

Thank you for letting us know - I’m addressing the issue now. A fix should be available shortly.

I was unable to get to mongodb university On-Demand, it keeps prompting licence not active.

Please log out and log back in… we’ve identified and resolved the problem. Thanks for your patience.

We identified a problem earlier today… and we believe we have resolved this. Please log out and log back in… try reapplying the license. Should work now.

How long does the $200 credits last/expire?

You must apply the credits within 90 days of receiving the code. Codes that go unapplied to Atlas for 90 days or more will no longer be valid. Once you apply the code, they don’t expire. Hope that answers your question.
