Also, your faculty, staff and students will lose access to the software in your Education Hub Store. You must re-enrol on the programme to receive a new subscriber ID number. Once the subscriber ID number has been activated, your students will regain access to the Education Hub Store.

  • When you first enrol on the programme, your subscriber ID number is in the subscription welcome email that you receive. If you renewed your subscription, it’s in the renewal email that the subscription administrator received. It’s also in the Visual Studio Subscription Portal; after you sign in, look under My subscription on the My account page. If you need help locating your current subscriber ID, please contact us.
