bad news, i got an email regarding to my request for SCJP exam student discount that says;

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.

Unfortunately, Sample University is not an SAI member institution.

Due to Suns acquisition by Oracle, we are not accepting new enrollments in the SAI program.


As i understand ,that means i wont be able to get any discount.

Hi, Can anyone tell me after how many days is the voucher sent, once the documentation has been sent? I have sent my documentation 10 days back. On the website they have mentioned 3 business days. I need to take the date and give the exam ASAP. I sent them an email asking for an estimate, but didn't get a reply.
Kindly let me know if anyone has any info on this front.
Thank you.

Arter purchasing, I have sent them documentation on 8'th of February and the only answer I've got was:

Thank you for your Sun Academic Initiative exam voucher order.

We are currently experiencing high order volume and staffing shortages,
which has affected our order processing time. Orders are being processed in
the order received. If you have submitted your order, completed payment,
and provided us with the requested documentation, you will receive your exam
voucher as quickly as possible.

We appreciate your patience.

Best regards,


on the same day. So I wait...

@Sushant :
I suggest you purchase the discount voucher A.S.A.P because I received a mail from Oracle in which they had written that please make your purchase before 30 March, after 30th March the vouchers would be available at a discount of 40% only....

Regards.

I bought a voucher on the 8th of February, they sent me the voucher 4 days ago and "Voucher Expiration Date" is "April 1, 2011", so it's one year.

THAT IS ALL TRUE.
Do you know, my friends, what will happen after closing SAI? I read about Oracle Academy, but they will not accept single registration from particular user. Only institutions will be accepted. What about that?

I don't have any information, except that on their website:

-As of January 27th 2010, we are no longer accepting registrations for new SAI members.
-Institutions are invited to join the Oracle Academy, which will expand to include Sun products in the next few months. Please check back for details.
-Students are invited to participate in the Oracle Academy through a member institution. (At present, the Oracle Academy does not accept registrations from individual students.)

Hi,
Here's the mail that I got :


Dear Sun Academic Initiative (SAI) member:

We are pleased to inform you that on January 27th, Oracle announced it finalized its acquisition of Sun Microsystems. Over the next few months, SAI will be integrated into the Oracle Academy, Oracle’s state-of-the-art technology program that provides education institutions with resources that prepare students for 21st century careers. Rest assured, your membership is important to us and we will keep you updated on any developments that affect the SAI program.

For now, we would like to provide you with an update on two key SAI benefits.

Certification Vouchers
All SAI members may purchase the $40 discount vouchers until March 31, 2010 at this link saic.educationservicesgroup.com/ and redeem the vouchers at Prometric testing centers through the expiration dates. The voucher instructions and expiration dates are sent via email when members purchase the vouchers.

After March 31, 2010, all SAI members may obtain 40% off discount vouchers by emailing: contact_sai@sun.com

* Students must provide full name, institution name and country.
* Faculty must provide institution name, country and the desired number of vouchers.

Access to Sun Learning Connection
You will be able to access the SAI Learning Connection SkillPort portal until December 31, 2010.

We are working to integrate Sun resources into the Oracle Academy program and will keep you informed of any changes so you can continue to access the resources and tools you need.

If you’d like to learn more about the Oracle Academy, please visit academy.oracle.com.

For questions, please contact oaiteam_us@oracle.com.

Best regards,
The SAI team
The Oracle Academy team

No. After March, it'll be 40% cheaper than the real price (than 300$) not 40$.

1. You get "SAI-Program ID" (they give it to you if you tell them where you study).
2. You place an order here http://saic.educationservicesgroup.com/
3. You pay.
4. You send them documentation (look: http://saic.educationservicesgroup.com/ )
5. You follow their instructions.

Does anyone know if Oracle Academy student vouchers allow to take every exam from Oracle? Or maybe Oracle Certified Professional line is allowed only?
