What Is the Term/Tenure for My Basic Education & Research Program? How Can I Extend It?

Until 2019, Basic Education & Research Program users did not have a specific end date and were therefore valid as long as their users had access to their organizational email address.

The program has updated to a fixed term of two years, after which account access will expire.

If your university affiliation is still active, you may log a ticket with support and request an extension.

Note: Not all institutions will be eligible to participate in the program.
