My school does not appear on the list provided. How do I get it added to the list so I can qualify for the Spotify Premium Student offer?

SheerID will review the request and add schools to the program based on criteria provided by Spotify. A few things to note depending on whether or not your school is located in the US:

For Non-US academic organizations:

  • Request to add a school via this formYour school must be a degree-granting program to be considered for approval. Because of the process to research and approve international organizations, the wait time may take up to 30 days. To check on the status of your school approval, please return to the “add a school” form.
  • Note: if you are unable to submit your school to the “add a school” form, this indicates that your school is already under consideration.

For academic organizations based within the United States:

  • We are not accepting requests to add US schools as use of the Premium Student offer is only open to students at US Title IV accredited higher education institutions in the US who meet additional qualifications described within Spotify’s Terms & Conditions.

I was asked to upload a document to verify I am a Student. What type of documentation is required?

Please upload a school-issued document, issued in the last 3 months, that clearly shows you’re currently enrolled in a college or university. The document needs to include your first name, last name, university name, and an issue date from the current academic term, or within the last 3 months. You can upload more than one document, if needed. These can include:

  • Official Enrollment Letter from your academic institution (acceptance letters will not be approved)
  • Class schedule for the current academic term
  • Registration receipt or tuition receipt
  • Transcript that shows classes currently in progress
  • Other school issued document that displays your first/last name, an issue date from the current term or within the last three months

We strongly suggest covering up or redacting all sensitive information on documentation before uploading it into our system for review.
