Need help?

We use a verification partner called SheerID to confirm your eligibility.

If you upload proof of enrollment, you need to wait for SheerID to email you with your eligibility status. This can take a few days. 

If the form isn’t working, try it in an incognito or private window of your browser. You can also try this link instead.

For more help, check out SheerID’s FAQ.

If you’re in higher education but your college/university isn’t on the list, you can request for it to be added here. Our verification partner SheerID will email you if it’s accepted. This can take a minimum of 30 days.

What if the university was available before? 

We recently changed verification partners to SheerID, so they have a different set of supported universities. They’d be happy to consider yours via this form though.

You can only have one Premium Student account at a time. The discount lasts for 1 year, 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.

If you’re at an eligible university, you can get Premium Student even if you’re abroad.

Your account’s country settings need to match the country of your university. You also need to use a payment method issued in that country. 

You can redeem a gift card on an account subscribed to Premium Student, but it will apply at the standard rate for Premium Individual. Therefore, if you have a 1 month Premium gift card, it won’t redeem 2 months of Premium Student.
