Sage 50 Student Download


I downloaded the Sage 50 software as per the instructions in my textbook. 

When I open it, it is asking me for a Key code that I don't have. Also an organization name. Do I put in my schools name for the organization name? and where can I find the key code?

Thank you for any help.

    Hi Melissa,

    Thanks for reaching out. See below for how to "register" to be sent a key code to use to activate the Sage 50 CA Student Edition:

    How to register the student version ?

    After registering, students receive an email with their username, serial code and activation code for a specific version of Sage 50 (2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 or 2022 etc.).

    Step 1: Open a web browser and go to

    Step 2: Fill in the form with the required information.

    Step 3: Wait for a confirmation email from Sage Education.

    Step 4: Use the Serial number and Key code in the email to activate your Sage 50 program.

    Step 5: These codes can be used again if ever you reinstall the program.

    How to activate the student version?

    The Student version has no Account ID, so if you encounter a field requiring this number during product activation then you've installed the regular version instead of the student version. You’ll need to run the clean-up tool then reinstall the product. The instructions for this are at the link: Getting started with the student version of Sage 50 CA

    Note: Enter your name as the company name 


    For further help, please leave a comment below, refer to you instructor or find more information on our knowledgebase or Sage City Sage 50 CA student forum.

    Hope this helps!

    Warm Regards,
