Spotify is a subscription-based streaming music company that requires users to pay for exclusive Premium services. The basic Premium individual subscription costs $10.99 per month, but the Spotify Student plan costs only $5.99 per month. It is reasonably priced for qualifying university students in the United States and 33 other countries worldwide. By joining the Spotify Premium Student plan, new users can enjoy the benefits of Spotify Premium for a free three-month trial period, followed by half-price streaming.

This comprehensive guide will help you unlock your student discount on Spotify. We'll show you how to get Spotify Premium Student and preserve your Spotify songs permanently after unsubscribing.

How to Get Spotify Premium Student

Spotify Premium Student plan is around 50% off the regular Spotify Premium price. In the USA, the Spotify Premium Student plan is freely bundled with an ad-based Hulu plan and SHOWTIME. Once the free Hulu subscription with Spotify is activated, Spotify users can get unlimited access to the Hulu streaming library, including numerous episodes, movies, and documentaries (with ads). You first need to verify if you're enrolled at an accredited college or university. After that, you can easily get your Premium student plan.

Step 1: Open the Student Plan website, and click on "Get started" button.

Step 2: Enter your personal information in the SheerID verification form.

Step 3: Next, verify your student status through your university portal, or by uploading proof of enrollment.

Step 4: SheerID will email you to confirm eligibility. Then you can claim the Premium Student discount.

Switch to Spotify Premium Student Plan

Step 1: Open the Spotify web player (or mobile application). Then log in to your Spotify account.

Step 2: Click Profile > Account on the top right corner. Find your current plan, and click "Change Plan".

Step 3: Click "Verify" next to Premium students. Then, confirm you're a student.

Step 4: Tap the "Get Student Discount" button, and then proceed with the payment.

Note: If you're a Spotify Free subscriber, select "Upgrade" and then click "GET STARTED" on the Premium Student plan. To obtain Spotify Student Premium, follow the above-mentioned verification requirements.

How to Keep Spotify Music after Student Plan Expires

The Premium Student Plan is available for up to 4 years and requires verification every 12 months. You'll lose access to the Spotify student discount when you graduate or leave school for any reason. The discounted Spotify plan will automatically be resumed to the full subscription price. Spotify Music Recorder is an alternative solution if you still want to enjoy your Spotify Premium songs offline after the Student Plan expires.
