Apple is trying to woo new students gearing up for the school year with a new offer that gives them six free months of service before they have to pay a dime.

The offer popped up on Apple’s educational site just after the company revealed its back-to-school promotion of free Beats headphones with qualifying purchases.

Apple Music already offered a three-month free trial for students, which also came with a 50% discount on the normal $9.99 per month subscription price. Now students can get six months of free access to 50 million songs and pay just $4.99 per month after. The offer runs July 9 to September 26, 2019.

To get the student discount, you must verify your eligibility through Unidays. Simply enter your college or university email address and school name into the Unidays form.

For its back-to-school promo, Apple is offering free BeatsX, Solo 3 or Studio 3 headphones if you buy an iMac, iMac Pro, MacBook Air or MacBook Pro. The deal is also open to teachers. If you buy a 9.7-inch iPad, iPad Air or iPad Pro, you can upgrade to free Studio 3 headphones by paying an additional $149.95.
