How Can I Connect My Github Account With Existing New Relic Account For Student Pack?

I’ve Github student pack and want to upgrade my existing new relic free account to a student edition. I could not find any setting in my account. How can I do that? Thanks.

Hi there @mrblithe - We would love to get you set up in the student edition version of New Relic. It sounds like you have the GitHub Student Developer pack.

On the New Relic side, just upgrade your account to the Student Edition. In the main menu, look for Student Edition and follow the instructions. Let us know if you have any problems.

I have some issue with that.

Contact your account administrator to apply to Students Edition. Not sure who to connect with? Email:

But i’am administrator of my personal account

Hi @cto32! I have reached out to our account team to assist you with this issue. They will follow up shortly by email to assist.

Hello, where exactly can I find Student Edition tab?

Hi @benasvol,

Thank you for reaching out to the Explorers Hub :slightly_smiling_face:

Can you verify that you have completed the following steps:

  • On account creation, sign up for Student Edition. You’ll be prompted to create or log in to your GitHub account
  • Apply for the GitHub Student Developer Pack, which requires proof of enrollment in an accredited institution
  • Once you’re verified through GitHub, sign in to the Student Edition with the token emailed to you to get started

You can read more on how to set this up here.

Let me know if you have questions.

There isn’t any option to sign up for the student edition on signup. It throws you straight into the free plan. Where would I be able to find the student tab? I already have a Github Student Developer account.

Hello @hamzah -

We took a look at your account and can confirm that you actually are on the Student Edition (I realize that the language on the signup pages reference a Free Account). You should now have access to 500 MB data ingest and up to 3 users on your account. If that’s not the case, please let me know.

Additionally, I’m going to take this to our product teams to see if we can make it a little more clear.

I eventually figured it out but it wasn’t the easiest thing to find. Screenshots or a video tutorial in the documentation would be helpful.
