Apple Music For Students Only USD 4.99 Per Month

Apple Music is offering a special discount for students for quite some time now. A subscription only costs USD 4.99 per month. Although this is not a new Apple Music plan, lots of students don’t know much about it. That’s a good reason for us to show you how you can subscribe as a student to Apple Music for a monthly rate of $4.99.


The requirement for the student discount is that you actually are enrolled in a university or college. The verification of your enrollment will be done by UNiDAYS. You can find out if your university is participating in the UNiDAYS program while registering for the subscription.

Therefore, it is impossible to get the student discount for Apple Music as a non-student.

Subscribe to the Student plan for Apple Music

If you want to subscribe to a student plan, you have to open the Music app and go to For You. You will see a note that gives you the opportunity to pick a plan. Click Choose Your Plan.

On the next level, you can choose one of the currently three plan options: Individual, Family or University Student. Select it and click Verify Eligibility.

Now enter your email address and state which university you are enrolled in.

You can basically enter your private email address. Some universities, however, want you to use the university Wi-Fi network, as well as the university email address.

If you cannot find your university, yours isn’t participating in the UNiDAYS program. Unfortunately, you can’t use the student discount.

Tap Next.

You now are requested to verify that you are a student. It will ask you to click the link in the email that got sent to your email address.

It also could be that you have to go to your university’s website in order to sign in to your student account. Each university handles this procedure differently. Just follow the instructions until you can complete your Apple Music student account.

In order to finish the whole subscription, you have to open the Apple Music app again. Tap Start Student Plan and enjoy a broad music selection for less money.
