Calling all students: you can get special discounts or free stuff just for going to school. For example, Apple will give students free AirPods when they buy an eligible Mac, and Target offers college students a 20% markdown on select dorm essentials. Then there’s the Nike student discount, which lets students save 10% on Nike workout clothes, athleisure, and sneakers.

It’s a fairly easy process, but we’ve got you covered on how to sign up, what the Nike student discount is valid for, and any other questions you might have below.

1. Signing up for the Nike student discount is easy.

Click on and then hit Verify Status on the student discount page. Nike uses SheerID to verify your age and status. Have this information ready:

  • High school or college you attend
  • First and last name
  • Student email address
  • Date of birth
  • Mobile phone number

Once verification is complete, they’ll send you an email and text with a single-use promo code for 10% off most items. To redeem the code, sign in to your Nike profile and use it at checkout. Simple, right?

2. You can use the Nike Student discount once every month.

Keep in mind that each promo code can only be used once, and it expires two weeks after you receive it. But the good news is you can sign up for a new code every 30 days. You’ll just have to verify your student status again.


3. The Nike student discount only applies to students 16 years and up.

Nike gives students in high school or college an additional 10% off their purchases. Note that you have to be at least 16 years old to be eligible.


4. You can use the discount on almost everything.

Besides using it in-store, you can use the student discount on the Nike website, the app, and affiliate sites within the U.S. That means you can save on essentials like workout clothes, socks, sneakers, and so much more without having to step into a store.

Our favorite part is that you can use this discount in combination with free shipping promo codes, too. Read the full terms and conditions here.

This code is only valid on the first $500 of your qualifying purchase, and it’s not valid on Nike By You, gift cards, and select Launch or SNKRS products.
