Students unlimited plan discount FAQs

General Information

  1. I am a college student. Am I eligible to get the students discount?

    To qualify for the students discount you must:

    • Be an actively enrolled student (including online enrollment) in a U.S. secondary educational institution of higher learning, including undergraduate, graduate, and/or vocational school or institution.
    • Have up to 2 smartphones or basic phones on a qualifying Verizon monthly unlimited plan. Accounts with 3 or more phone lines are not eligible. This promotion is limited to accounts with 2 phone lines maximum. If a 3rd phone line is added the discount no longer applies. You can still add connected devices such as watches and tablets to your account without losing your student discount.
