  3. Susan Ibach says:

    @Akhil – email we can let you know how we can get you a code (let us know what country you live in, and we will need you to prove you are a student, e.g. scan and send your student id card)

  4. Saurabh Sharma says:

    I have an ISIC (got it today), but when I try to verify my student status in dreamspark, all i get is this "Invalid card number." Please help me with this.

    My University don't provide .edu emails to students, so ISIC is the only option I am left with. Please provide me a solution.

  5. Susan Ibach says:

    Hi Saurabh,

    What country do you live in? I can probably put you in touch with a local evangelist to help you get it sorted out.

    @Nishit you should contact DreamSpark support for help getting your account fixed…/Support.aspx

  11. Phuong says:

    What method do I use for student verification with a scanned copy of my student id card?

  12. Susan Ibach says:

    @Phuong my understanding is that only an international student ID card is accepted (make sense if you think about it, there are tens of thousands of schools around the world, the verification team so trying to identify valid id cards from any school in the world would be virtually impossible). However any student should be able to get an ISIC card (I got one of those many years ago so I could prove I was a student at Youth hostels)  and then you can submit the ISIC card as validation. You can also talk to your instructor or professor and ask if they could get DreamSpark for your school. If there is a Microsoft event nearby and you can find your local evangelist they may be able to help you out as well.

    I live in India. Please help me getting my verification code. I have only one attempt remaining.

  16. Susan Ibach says:

    @syed I would try contacting DreamSpark support…/Support.aspx  they should be able to help you out

  17. kisal says:

    my school is not listed in there.can anyone say me how to join?

  18. Susan Ibach says:

    @Kisal – If your school is not listed you can create your account at by verifiying it with and ISIC student card (which you can apply for online). Or if you can find a Microsoft evangelist in your country you can ask them for an activation code.

  19. Susan Ibach says:

    To find a local evangelist, a good place to start is by going to the Microsoft Student facebook page and post a question asking who your local evangelist contact would be.

    i study in school in india , i need a verify code

  21. Susan Ibach says:

    @syed – if you go to – choose students – Create account, when you get to the verification stage you can choose the option of providing proof that you are a student (such as a copy of your student id) that will allow you to get a DreamSpark account without a verification code. Hope that helps!


  22. amir says:

    i need a verification code plz…

  23. Susan Ibach says:

    Hello Amir, you do not need a verification code. You can simply complete the verification process and select the "I can supply documentation" option and submit your report card, transcript or student id or something of that nature to get verified as a student and get access to DreamSpark
