MongoDB is part of the GitHub Student Developer Pack

MongoDB is the leading modern, general purpose database platform, designed to unleash the power of software and data for developers and the applications they build. We believe that making data easy to work with gives people the opportunity to free their genius and create something world-changing

Benefits of Participation

MongoDB University On-Demand and Free Certification ($150)

All of our MongoDB University training courses - from beginner to advanced - are completely free for anyone and everyone. As part of the on-demand program you are able to take the courses at your leisure rather than having to adhere to our normal course schedule. Complete the Developer or the DBA learning path and enrich your resume with our free certification!

$50 in MongoDB Atlas Credits

MongoDB Atlas is the most advanced cloud database service on the market. Atlas free clusters provide a small-scale development environment to host your data. Free clusters never expire, and provide access to a subset of Atlas features and functionality. The most popular features of Atlas are available on paid and free clusters. Start building your project now on our Free Cluster or create a paid cluster with this $50 Atlas credits student perk!

MongoDB Compass

MongoDB Compass is the GUI for MongoDB. Compass allows you to analyze and understand the contents of your data without formal knowledge of MongoDB query syntax. In addition to exploring your data in a visual environment, you can also use Compass to optimize query performance, manage indexes, and implement document validation.

You will need a valid credit card or a PayPal account to redeem this offer. You can add your payment information on the billing page. If you don't have a credit card or PayPal, we suggest getting started with an M0 instance. Most of the MongoDB Student Spotlight projects are created with our free cluster!

How long do codes last? Do they expire if I don't use them?

Atlas Promotional Codes will expire if they're not applied to your Atlas account within 90 days. You will be able to request a new code assuming you did not use the previous one and that you've received it less than 12 months ago.

How do I redeem the Atlas Code to my Atlas organization?

Once you've received your Atlas Promotional Code, you can apply the credits to your selected Atlas organization. Select your organization from the Context dropdown at the top of the left column on the screen. Click Billing. Click Apply Code and enter the activation code.
