How do I qualify for SoundCloud Go+ for Students?
You will have to verify your student eligibility via SheerID.
I wasn’t verified through SheerID - why?
If you were not able to verify your eligibility successfully through SheerID, there may be a few reasons why:
- Your college or university is not listed in SheerID’s database
- The documentation you manually uploaded did not prove your eligibility (specific reasons regarding your documentation are included in the verification emails sent by SheerID)
- You have exceeded the maximum eligibility of four years
Please contact SheerID in any of these cases as we cannot manually override these requirements.
Do I need to re-verify each year? How and when?
Yes, you’ll need to re-verify your eligibility every 12 months through SheerID to continue to be entitled to student pricing. Don’t worry, we’ll email you before the year is up reminding you to re-verify.
You can renew your SoundCloud Go+ for Students subscription up to three times for a total of four years of student pricing.
If you do not re-verify your eligibility after your first 12 months, you will be charged the standard SoundCloud Go+ price for the next month(s) unless you cancel your subscription before the next billing period.
If I graduate or leave school after I subscribe will I still have access to my subscription?
You’ll have access to SoundCloud Go+ for Students for up to 12 months from the day you first subscribed or re-verified even if you graduate or leave school during that period. If you’re not a student at the end of the last period, you will no longer be eligible for SoundCloud Go+ for Students and you will automatically renew at the price of SoundCloud Go+ if you do not cancel your subscription.
What if I’m already a subscriber?
If you are already a subscriber to SoundCloud Go or SoundCloud Go+, you can still subscribe to SoundCloud Go+ for Students after you have verified your eligibility. After switching to SoundCloud Go+ for Students, you will be charged the new price during your next billing period.
