How to apply

Team Owners can submit an application directly from the team you want to upgrade. If your organization isn’t already using Slack, take a moment to create a Slack team. We’ll grant Slack for Education status to the team you use to apply.

When you’re ready, fill out the Slack for Education application form.

As well as some basic information about your institution and your Slack team, you’ll need to provide documents that demonstrate your institution’s nonprofit or accredited status, such as a letter from a tax service or your school’s central administrator.

The review process

Our team will review your application and respond as quickly as we can.

While we don’t offer appeals for applications that aren’t approved, you’re welcome to apply again in the future if the status of your institution changes. Even if your team doesn’t qualify, you’re welcome to continue using the Free plan for as long as you like.


Eligible Slack for Education teams that were previously on the Free plan will be able to upgrade as soon as their application is approved. Sorry, we don't offer refunds to teams that are already on paid plans. 

Note that due to the volume of applications we receive, Slack is unable to provide vendor or payment forms, portals, or agreements.
