Welcome to the Authorized Education Partner Program

The Authorized Education Partner program

The Microsoft® Authorized Education Partner program authorizes partners to purchase and resell academic priced Microsoft offers and products to Qualified Educational Users (QEUs). Distributors will only accept orders from partners that are AEPs. To join or renew your AEP Certification, follow these guided steps as part of the registration process:

  • Validate your MPN ID
  • Download and study the AEP training material
  • Complete the test module
  • Fill out the application form, review and accept Terms and Conditions

Cloud Solution Provider in education (CSP)

AEP certification is also required for Cloud Solution Providers to access the Microsoft education offers and related education pricelist from the Partner Center dashboard. The customer must also qualify (QEU) for the special price. Once you complete the AEP process, check your reseller qualifications as follows in Partner Center:

  • From the Dashboard menu, select: Overview, Partner account, View your partner profile
  • In Partner profile, under Program info, look for Reseller qualifications, Education is listed there
  • If you do not see Education in Reseller qualifications, you have not yet been authorized to purchase any special offers
