Hi! I just applied for my student discount, but my Spotify account is currently linked with my facebook account -- which is not connected to my college email ID. While applying, I only entered the name of my college (wasn't asked to enter college email, and hence didn't get any confirmation email). I'm confused as to how it'll be verified that I'm in fact a student. Thanks!

Hi CTL1 and welcome! 🙂
You should not have to change your email or use your .edu email in order to receive the student promotion. Spotify uses the SheerID service to verify that you are enrolled based on the school info you provided at sign up.
Unless you are signed up with another provider other than Spotify, you should be able to use your current Facebook account. The only difference from your current account and the Student one will be when the payment discount takes effect.
If you just signed up for it there is a wait time of up to 28 days for verification and once verified, the discount will apply at your next billing cycle.
On that note, if you are currently paying for Premium through Paypal or Prepaid cards you will need to update your payment type since you cannot pay for the student discount with those pay types.
I hope this was helpful! 🙂
