Sage is committed to ensuring you have what you need to teach with our product. Email us at [email protected] should you have any questions, concerns, or comments.
  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 or education version. Downloading updates will cause the student version to no longer be compatible and students will not be able to transfer data between the education version and the student version they use 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.
