Review common reasons that applications for an educator or researcher discount are denied and learn tips for reapplying successfully.

If the image or document you uploaded doesn't clearly identify your current employment with a school or university, you must reapply by uploading an image of your faculty ID or employment verification letter with clear information.

Using an academic email with an unverified domain

If your academic email address has an unverified domain, you must reapply by uploading proof of your current employment. When you reapply, use the "Upload proof of current school affiliation" drop-down option and upload an image of your faculty ID or employment verification letter.
