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 your university isn’t on the list, we’re afraid it’s not eligible right now. Check out other Premium offers and deals.

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. 

Gift cards are not redeemable for Premium Student.

Your Premium Student subscription gives you access to Hulu’s ad-supported plan and SHOWTIME. If you wish to subscribe to another Hulu plan, you can sign up directly through Hulu.
