Apple TV+ isn't available in all countries and regions. You may be able to use Apple Music but not Apple TV+ in your country or region. Learn what's available in your country or region.


How to re-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 Apple Music app or iTunes. You can also verify your student status at any time in the Settings app on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

In the Apple 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've signed 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 your Apple Music student subscription will continue.

If you're no longer a student

If you're no longer a student or if you've completed 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 remaining of your 48 months, you'll have to re-enrol as a student.
