About the Apple Music student subscription

When you join Apple Music as a student, UNiDAYS, a student validation service, confirms that you're enrolled in a degree-granting university or college. After UNiDAYS verifies that you're a student, then you can get a student subscription to Apple Music. Learn more about Apple Music and Apple Music pricing.

If prompted, agree to the terms and conditions.


Verify your student status

Near the end of each year that you have an Apple Music student subscription, you'll see a message that asks you to verify your student status in the Music app or iTunes for Windows. You can also verify your student status at any time using your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

In the Music app or iTunes for Windows

If you see a message that asks you to verify your student status:

  1. Tap or click Verify Eligibility.
  2. Tap or click Go to Website.
  3. Sign in to your institution's portal.
  4. After you sign in to your institution's portal, you’ll be directed back to Apple Music and see a confirmation screen.

In Settings on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

  1. Go to Settings > [your name], then tap Subscriptions.
  2. Tap Apple Music Membership.
  3. Tap Verify your student status. You'll be redirected to the UNiDAYS website.
  4. Follow the prompts to verify your eligibility. If the verification is successful, you'll automatically return to Apple Music and continue your Apple Music student subscription.

No longer a student?

If you're no longer a student or if you complete 48 months of a student subscription, your subscription automatically becomes an Apple Music Individual subscription and you lose free access to Apple TV+. If you're prompted to verify your student status after launching Apple Music, but you're no longer a student or have completed 48 months of a subscription, tap or click "I'm No Longer A Student." You won't be asked to verify again.

If you don’t confirm during the verification period, and you still have time left in your 48 months, you'll have to re-enroll as a student.
