Any institution whose purposes directly relates to learning, teaching, and/or training may qualify. Educational purposes do not include commercial, professional, or any other for-profit purposes.

We're able to provide only one license per educational institution (Gold or Ultimate). That's why students can't apply on behalf of their educational institution. To apply please fill out the form below.

Support note - Free GitLab Ultimate and Gold accounts do not include support. However, you can buy support for 95% off, at $4.95 per user per month. Can students apply? Can students apply for a discount? To reduce the administrative burden for GitLab, only educational institutions can apply on behalf of their students. If you're a student and your educational institution does not apply, you can use public projects on GitLab.com with all functionality, use private projects with the free functionality, or pay yourself.
