Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
My Tableau student licence has expired! How do I renew my student licence?
To extend or renew your Tableau student licence, simply re-submit this Tableau for Students form to verify you’re still enrolled. www.tableau.com/en-gb/studentlicense
My product key is invalid
If you’re receiving the error “the product key is invalid”, it may be because the current version you have installed is an older version of Tableau. Please check out our Knowledge Base page for additional support on how to resolve your issue.
If these steps don’t work, please feel free to submit a support case here. Enter “installation” or other keywords into the search bar to help find your answer. If you cannot find the correct documentation, feel free to submit a support case via the “Continue to create case” button and a member of our technical support team will be with you shortly.
Can I get a student discount for the Tableau Desktop Specialist certification?
We are currently offering a 20% discount on the Tableau Desktop Specialist exam to students. We do not offer discounts on the other exams at this time.
Please check out the Certification site for more information. The discount is automatically applied if you were successfully verified from SheerID when you applied for a student licence. If the discount does not work, please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for a discount code. In the case of a discount error, please wait to purchase until Academic Programmes has resolved the error, as retroactive discounts and refunds are not possible.
Can I install Tableau on more than one device?
You are only allowed up to two activations with the same product key. This means you can install Tableau on up to two devices. If you have reached the maximum number of activations and wish to install on another device, you must deactivate one of those activations. If you need assistance moving or deactivating Tableau on a machine, you can get more information here.
What's the best way to get started learning with Tableau as a student?
We recommend starting with the free Getting Started videos if this is your first time using Tableau. Also, check out the student resource page for example data sets and additional free training.
Can I use my student licence as part of my internship or job?
Absolutely! No additional documentation is required.
