Student Membership and dutch studentsemail

Dear SA,

I just signed on to your site and found you have to pay for it.

Luckily I am a student at university of amsterdam studying, finance and organisation.

I really enjoy everything about stocks.

However, your site only recognizes .edu but everyone here has an email address such as mine.


Same problem for .ac.uk (UK student)

Hi, I still have the same issue with an Australian student address which ends in .edu.au. I wrote an email and received a response from Seeking Alpha that this would be fixed in 2 weeks on the next run (response copied below). However, still doesnt seem to be working? 


Hi there,

Thanks for the message and for your interest in Essential (previously Pro). We are looking to cover email addresses not ending with.edu in our next sprint. Kindly contact us after two weeks and we should have an update for you.

If I can help with anything else, please let me know.

Best regards,



In Finland we don't get student emails at every educational institution. Any chance of a workaround where one could send a picture of one's student card to prove status? 

Same problem for germany. Any news?
