How to apply for an Education account
To apply for an Education account, fill out the application form on our website. There you will need to provide a document supporting your student/employment status (a school ID would do, or a screenshot of the web page from your school's website where your position is stated) and a document confirming the accreditation of your institution. For accreditation confirmation, you may use a screenshot from your institution website confirming their accredited/officially recognized status, or a letter from your institution's central administrator, or any other confirmation.
It is also necessary to include your educational email address: an email that ends in *.edu or *.k12, or belongs to the domain of your public educational institution. If you don’t have an educational email address, provide proof of your affiliation with an educational institution.
It may take us up to 10 days to respond to your application, as we've been getting a lot of requests recently. When your account is created you will receive an invitation email with the login information from Miro (if you are not registered with Miro) or a notification saying that your Education account is now available on your dashboard (if you already have a profile with Miro).
