SoundCloud today announced the launch of discounted student memberships, offering students the chance to subscribe to SoundCloud Go+ for $4.99/month instead of the traditional price of $9.99/month. SoundCloud Go+ for Students is available to all students enrolled at a Title IV degree-granting college or university, and they'll be eligible for up to four consecutive years.

Students will gain all of the same perks of SoundCloud Go+ as regular subscribers, including offline listening, ad-free playback, full catalog access with no previews, high-quality audio, and more. Students who already subscribe to SoundCloud Go+ can still subscribe to the student plan after verifying their identity and student status with SoundCloud through the third-party SheerID service.

SoundCloud is following in the footsteps of most other music streaming services with today's announcement, since rivals like Apple Music and Spotify have been offering a 50 percent discount for students for a few years now. With these discounts, each service typically offers students the chance to subscribe for as low as $4.99/month, and when they graduate the discount ends.

Last month, SoundCloud revealed a new tool that lets creators distribute their music directly to ‌Apple Music‌ and Spotify, allowing artists to easily share their work among the major streaming services. Although SoundCloud has its Go+ consumer streaming service, the company is also known for its SoundCloud Pro and Pro Unlimited services that are aimed at artists, with features like release scheduling, streaming numbers, full embed controls, unlimited uploads, and the new ‌Apple Music‌ distribution feature.

Students interested in signing up for the discounted Go+ subscription can visit SoundCloud's website to sign up for a 30-day free trial.

Lol does anyone use it for music tho?

I thought it was mostly old guys in thier moms basement using GarageBand to peddle thier demo tapes on there.
LOL it is an incredible place to find exceedingly nice electronic / dance / remixes that I'd never be able to find anywhere else. AND FOR FREE if you can live with some commercials and streaming-only !!!

Of course when one contents with the same old rinse-recycle force-fed sound-alike rap-pop-raggetonic-rumba crap, then any applotify subscription serves nicely.

These student discounts are great, but what about the “I’m done with college and paying back student loans and I’m broke, man” discounts?
