Requirements

Apple is pretty generous, when it comes to the scope of who is considered a pupil or student and entitled to the academic discount. The student discount inludes employees of academic institutions, such as teachers, professors, speakers and non-academic employees of such institutions. If you work for a school or university, chances are you can claim the benefits.
By the way, this also goes for the parents shopping for students.

Apple Education Store

If you think that you are qualified to claim the discount, check out the following link: http://www.apple.com/us-hed/shop
Depending upon your current residence, you might have to visit your regional Apple website to view the education store.

Specific programs for academic institutions

Keep in mind that when working for an academic institution, there might already be a purchasing program in place that is specific to your institution and perhaps even offers better terms than the academic pricing for individuals as seen in the link above.

You can search for your school or university at this link and also sign into its own store right here:

Apple Student Discount for Mac & iPad

Inside the individual education stores, different prices become quite apparent. Simply place the object of your desire, like a MacBook, MacBookAir or MacBook Pro, in the shopping basket and shop as you normally would. The Education discount also includes the iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil. Keep in mind that the selection of products may be limited to a certain number. So far there is no iPhone discount for students.

Apple Student Discount for Apple Music

You can also get the Apple Music streaming service for less if you are currently enrolled in a university. Read more on how to save money using Apple Music.
