Hi Guys,

I'm interested by the student discounted SCJP Voucher but - since the purchase - the SAI web site is no longer accepting registrations for new members.

Is there an alternative solution ?

Will Oracle maintain the student discount on sun certifications ??

Thanks for your help !

I conducted my investigation and even if the Sun Academic Initiative web site is no longer accepting registrations for new members, students still can get discounted SCJP Voucher from http://saic.educationservicesgroup.com/ if they are at an SAI-member educational institution.
If they do not know whether there school is an SAI member institution they can contact the very helpful SAI Voucher Team at SAIVouchers@sun.com.

I don't understand. Look, there is a field called "SAI-Proram ID". We should enter there our ID from SAI. But what to do, if we aren't in SAI and we can't register there now?

Could you describe what to do, point after point, to get discounted SCJP Voucher, because I don't understand it.

Thanks in advance!

SAI-Proram ID is not attributed by student but by country ... you can send an email to the SAI Voucher Team at SAIVouchers@sun.com with your school’s name and address and they will probably send you the appropriate SAI-Proram ID.

But if you already know your country SAI-Proram ID or you can find-it ... I think you can use-it to order a student voucher ... don't forget that this price is strictly reserved to students ...

Thank you for your interest in the Sun Academic Initiative program. I am happy to help.

The SAI exam voucher program is open to all students, faculty, and staff of educational institutions. Students who have graduated from an educational institution within the past six months are also eligible. In order to participate in the program, you must already be registered for the Sun Academic Initiative (SAI) program or your school needs to be an SAI partner for you to participate.

(...)

You may place your order through the SAI Exam Voucher Purchase Site at http://saic.educationservicesgroup.com/. You will find instructions for placing your order there.

Exam vouchers are $40 US. Vouchers are valid for one year from the date of purchase and are valid at Prometric testing centers worldwide.

Once you have placed your order, we must verify your status as a student, faculty, or staff of an eligible educational institution.

(...)

Please let us know if you have further questions.


Apart from this, they told me that my school is an SAI member institution and what my SAI Program ID is.

One question mark should be enough. If you are a student and in an eligible country you may qualify for the SAI. If not go for the normal voucher

Then I forget about SAI, and once i complete my preparation, then I think abt buying it from Wizlabs.


Yes a wise choice. Buy a voucher after your preparation is over.

Hello Vinit,

Thank you for your interest in the SAI Exam Voucher Purchase program. I am happy to help.

You do have the option of having another individual pay for your order via credit card or PayPal account. Please note that during the PayPal payment confirmation process, there is a field where you are asked to enter the name and email of the student when this information is not the same as the person making payment. Completing this field will help us expedite the processing of your order.

If you are unable to complete your purchase online using PayPal, please follow the instructions below to place your SAI exam voucher order and complete your purchase by credit card or wire transfer:

1) Enter your order in the SAI Exam Voucher Purchase site at http://saic.educationservicesgroup.com/ and click “submit”. You will be transferred to PayPal. Close your browser window.

2) Immediately send an email to saivouchers@sun.com. Include the following information in your email:
a) Your name, as it appears in your order
b) The email address, as it appears in your order
c) State your method of payment – credit card or wire transfer

3) Send the payment for your order by credit card in US funds using the attached form. (For wire transfer see #4)

SAI exam vouchers are $40.00 USD each. Each exam voucher is valid for one year.

If you are making payment by credit card, we highly recommend faxing your credit card information to us using the attached payment form. Sending credit card account information via email is not advised due to the security risks inherent to email communication.

4) To complete payment for your SAI exam voucher order by wire transfer, follow the procedure below:

a) Locate a bank or other financial institution to perform the wire transfer.

b) Provide the financial institution with our account information below:

Education Services Group: Sun Microsystems
Swift Code: HUNTUS33
Account Number: 01651296136
ABA Routing: 044000024

Huntington National Bank
41 S High Street (OP47)
Columbus, OH 43215
The bank uses this information to transfer the funds to our account. Most financial institutions charge a fee for this service. All fees are the responsibility of the student

SAI exam vouchers are $40.00 USD each, payable in US funds only.

c) Once you have requested the wire transfer, please send us an email at saivouchers@sun.com with the following information:

- Your Name
- Your order number (if you have been issued one by us)
- Name of financial institution performing the wire transfer
- Account number and/or confirmation number for the transaction

d) Once the funds have posted in our account and we have received your documentation of eligibility, we will email you your voucher number as quickly as possible.

Please let us know if you have further questions. Thank you for supporting the Sun Academic Initiative.

i wrote that you couldnt register now because it closed by SUN/ORACLE(from 27 Jan 2010).
But you can only purchase discounted coupon only but doesnt take benifit of SAI member(like free pratice exam, preparation material and many more).
In purchasing, if you have problem in paypal then you can send mail to saivouchers@sun.com(with specific problem) they respond you within one week and provide you solution.
I also purchase it 10 days ago me to have problem in paypal and they provide solution.

i have read all the posts about this topic. I wasnt aware that there is a discount for students.

But,
could someone clarify one thing for me

when we get that discount coupon for 40USD, do we need to pay extra fee for the SCJP exam?

I mean if i dont have discount coupon, i have to pay 300USD. But i get that coupon, how much SCJP exam will cost for me?
