Get help on Sage City

While technical support is not included with educational versions of Sage software, you can always find the answers you're looking for any time online at Sage City. 

  1. In some cases, emails will be sent to either your junk folder or blocked by your firewall. Please check your junk folder for your keys if you do not receive an email more than 48 hours after submitting your registration form.
  2. Do not download any product updates for the student version of software. Downloading updates will cause the student version to no longer be compatible and you will not be able to transfer data between the education version and the student version used at home.
  3. Due to a third-party database component that is no longer supported, teachers and students will be unable to reinstall or reactivate Sage 50 US versions 2013 through 2020.  Links to unsupported versions of Sage 50 US (version 2020 and older) have been removed from our Education Alliance Program web pages to ensure colleges are using only versions of the software that are tested and officially supported.
