Some students are using gitlab.com and they don’t have a credit card. Any way to validate the account without credit card?
Reading through Preventing Crypto Mining abuse on GitLab.com SaaS - #67 by whaber, I didn’t see a way to validate individual accounts without a credit card.
As an alternative, you could create a group (namespace) for your students, and apply for
the GitLab for education program.
Once a subscription is applied to the namespace, you can invite students and they won’t need to validate their account.
Updated link to the GitLab for education page.
The link I posted above has moved.
