Azure for Students offers a license with $100 in Azure credits that can be used for the first 12 months along with some free services without the need to provide a credit card when subscribing.

Step 2: Identify yourself.

You then need to sign in or sign up with a Microsoft account. For this step you can use an institutional email or a personal email.

Microsoft Sigin

Note: In case an institutional account has several purposes, you must select: Personal account and always use this means to access to Azure.

Step 3: Academic verification.

As a first point, we will need to verify our authenticity with a verification code that will be sent by text message. Then we must perform the academic verification, in this case with an email (.edu) as you can see below:

Step 2: Identify yourself.
