Manage your YouTube student membership

Have a question about your YouTube student membership? See below for help with verification or changes to your membership. If you need additional help, you can contact YouTube support for help with any paid membership.


Re-verify your student status

Student memberships to YouTube Music Premium or YouTube Premium require you to verify your status as a student annually to retain your discounted student pricing. You will be notified via email about how to re-verify your student status, near the end of each year of membership.
For help with the verification process, email SheerID at If you need help with your membership, contact YouTube support.

Cancel your membership

You can cancel your YouTube paid membership at any time. When you cancel, you will still have access to your paid membership benefits until the end of your monthly billing cycle.

End of student membership

You can be on a YouTube student membership for up to 4 years. At the end of each year, you will be required to re-verify your eligibility. If you remain a subscriber but are no longer eligible for discounted student pricing, your student membership will automatically transition over to a full-priced YouTube Premium or YouTube Music Premium membership. You can cancel your YouTube paid membership at any time.
