Proof of Enrollment

When filling out your Google Code-in 2012 Profile on the Program Site you will also need to upload Proof of Enrollment in a Pre-university, high school or secondary program before you will be able to complete any tasks and receive any prizes.

Any one of following documents is considered acceptable proof of enrollment:

A scanned copy of your student identification card that shows you were enrolled as of 26 November 2012. The card needs to say 2012-2013 school year on it. Some ID's have a picture ID and name on the front and the school year on the back, be sure to scan both pages if this is the case.

A transcript or course list (official or unofficial is fine) showing the courses you were enrolled in as of 26 November 2012. Transcript in .txt format is NOT acceptable, but a .pdf or .jpeg of the transcript is. (Also attach a translated version in .txt or .pdf format if it is not in English)

A letter from your student affairs or admissions office stating that you were enrolled as of 26 November 2012. The letter must specifically state that you were enrolled as a student on November 26, 2012. It can not just be dated today and say that you are a student at the school. If the letter is in a language other than English you will need to also send a translated copy in pdf or txt format.

If you are homeschooled, you must provide a proof of enrollment from your cover school. If you have questions about the home school requirement please email program administrators at
