Guys, I found a really cheap flight from Boston To Madrid on the student website. However, I just graduated in December. Will I still be able to get the tickets? How would they know that I'm not a student anymore?

I guess I could sign up for classes at a community college and then just withdraw as soon as I get them. Does that sound like a good idea?

Any helpful info on this would be greatly appreciated.

I think when I booked with them they just wanted me to give them my @.edu email address and write back to them from it to confirm.. They should tell you on the website what they want.

Seems like the most relevant info about your problem. At a conservative guess, they might do some simple check to see if you are a student at the time of booking. May it be through e-mail, contacting the school or through some database of registered students.
