Who can avail Apple’s student discount?
Apple’s “Education Pricing” program is reserved only for students and teachers. If we go by the book, only the following individuals can avail the student discount –
- College students and their parents
- School and college teachers
- Homeschool teachers/parents
But does Apple really ask for an appropriate proof or student ID? No.
The profit margin of iPad, MacBooks and other Apple devices is so high that they simply do not care. All they care about is shoving down their shiny new devices down the throats of buyers.
You can use any regular email ID on Apple’s website. There’s no need to have a special “.edu” student email address.
How to get student discount without being a student
For US residents
Step 1 Go to Apple’s Education Pricing store here.
Step 2 Scroll down and select the iPad given in the middle. You can select other models or devices as well.
Step 3 Select your model/color and finalize the purchase like you normally would. You can also pick your device up from a store once you have ordered it.
This trick works only for US residents. If you try to buy this iPad from an Apple Store, you will need to furnish proper physical proof of your student or teacher status.
Some employees don’t ask for an ID even in Apple Stores because users can get the same discount online without breaking a sweat. Just stick to the online store and you will be golden.
For non-US residents
Unfortunately, this method doesn’t work outside the US. If you are based in another country or location such as the UK or Spain, you must have a verified Unidays account beforehand to avail this discount.

Looks like the same price with edu and regular store when compared online. Not sure where discount kicks in.
The actual price is $329 whereas the discounted price is $309. Are you not able to get the discount in US?
Oh, OK. I didn’t complete the order, just wanted to see how much is the difference in the price.
