Premium for Students

With Premium for Students, you can get 50% off a Premium subscription for a whole year! You can renew every 12 months (up to 3 times), as long as you’re eligible.

Get started

If you’re currently enrolled at an accredited college or university, you can apply for the Student discount today.

Note: It’s currently not possible to pay for the Student discount with a Spotify gift card, and you can't apply additional discounts such as Premium for Family.

Already have Premium?

That’s cool! The discounted rate will automatically begin on your next billing date. You can check the status of your subscription at any time.

Note: If you subscribed through any other company than Spotify (e.g. with your internet/mobile provider or iTunes), you need to cancel your existing subscription with them before signing up.

We verify your student status through a third-party service called SheerID. For more information, including details of the documentation you need to verify your student status, check out their student support page

We use SheerID to verify your Student status. If they’re unable to, we’re afraid you’re not eligible for the Student discount at this time.

Please check:

  • You haven’t already claimed the discount on another Spotify account. Find other accounts.
  • Your school is listed. If you didn’t see your school in the list during sign up, you're not eligible right now. But you can request to have your school/university added to the list here.
  • You haven’t exceeded the 4-year limit. The discount lasts 12 months at a time, with the option to renew a maximum of 3 times as long as you're eligible.

If you’re still having trouble getting the discount after these checks, you can get in touch with SheerID.

No. You are entitled to only one account with the student discount at a time, and that discount lasts for 12 months even if you cancel the subscription or close the account.

If you want to apply your student discount to another account, you need to wait until 12 months have elapsed since you first signed up for it on your current account.

You can! If you’re enrolled with a university that’s eligible for our Student discount, you can take advantage even if you’re abroad.

Your account’s country settings need to match the country of your university, and your payment method needs to have also been issued in that same country. For help with this, check out country settings.

If your college/university doesn’t appear on the list provided, you can request SheerID to get it added. Just fill in this form and SheerID will email you if it’s accepted to the approved list. 

Note: This process can take a minimum of 30 days.
