Student Discounts

I am a student and have been interested in using Digital Ocean for a while, after my horrible current hosting plan is up with another company(Who shall not be named) I 100% intend to switch over.

As a result of being a student I am a little tight on money at the moment. I was wondering if there are any student discounts on hosting plans.

Side note: I am interested in getting a plan with 2GB+ of memory, going to host a website as well as use Dokku and Gitlab

Excited to see student interest in DigitalOcean! Students and educators are eligible for $100 of free credits for 60 days if they are first time users of DigitalOcean products. You can learn more about the free credits and using DigitalOcean tutorials and cloud services for research and teaching here at DigitalOcean for Higher Education.

    Sorry for the majour bump on this thread, but: GitHub is slow as all hell in accepting students. Maybe it’s because I’m from a Norwegian university, but it’s still really really annoying. I’ve waited for a month to get the pack now, and still no reply, just pending. DigitalOcean should consider getting their own discount program, as GitHub’s seems pretty damn bad. Oh well, just gonna have to rent a server without it… =/

      Hi, I have a github student account i already enter my promo code and i received a notification “Your account just received a credit of $100 for Updated to $100 on Jan 14, 2021.” But there is no 100$ credit in my account can you check my account please?
