My Question or Issue

To whom this may concern, I was previously subscribed to the student plant. As of today, I've realized that I am no longer subscribed to the student plant. Instead, I was paying for a regular plan. I don't know how this changed. Anyways, I still wish to resume the student subscription so I go ahead and attempt to change plans but am greeted with this error message upon entering the required information for the student plan

 

"Unfortunately, we couldn't confirm that you're a student.
Please check your details and try again.

If we still can't confirm your details, you won't be charged.
Any pending charges on your card statement will disappear in a few days.
I don't know what to do about this. I am currently still a student and have not reached the 4-year limit.  Thanks in advance.

Hello @Billy-J, I appreciate your initiative to help
Unfortunately, after following your suggestions, none have been able to help. 
Under the support article that you provided, the section only speaks about proof of enrollment, I'm not being prompted to provide proof, nor was I when I firstly subscribed to the student plan. Secondly, withing the previously mentioned support section, this link was also suggested for enrollment but my country does not appear as an option. 


Do you have any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance

Hey @lamyil - help's here!

We noticed you mentioned that your country doesn't appear in the list of eligible countries. We can confirm that this is because Puerto Rico is not eligible for Premium Students.

If, however, you are studying in a country which is eligible, and your account is set to that country, could you try going through the verification process once again, but this time entering the country in which you're studying? All eligible countries should appear in the list in the verification form here.

Also just bear in mind that you need to renew your student status every 12 months in order to get Premium at the discounted rate. You will usually get an email reminder well in advance (if you didn't, make sure to check your spam folder).

Let us know how it goes! We'll be here in case you need any further help :)
