What is an electronic Letter of Eligibility and how do my customers obtain one?

An electronic Letter of Eligibility (or LoE) makes the relationship between the education institution and Microsoft official. It needs to be agreed upon during the 24-month period in which they purchase an Education device for Education Use.
To apply for an LoE, users will need to verify their eligibility through their Microsoft Education account.

What if the customer encounters an issue whilst obtaining their LoE?

If a customer encounters an error in this process, they will have to provide certain information to the original equipment manufacturer, including: school name, customer domain, customer name, customer’s school email address, school address, DFE number, screenshot of the error message and any Comments to support.
