Validate Academic Email API

Base tier

About

This API allows you to verify and validate whether the email belongs to a recognized educational institution ensuring the validity of academic email.
This API can be used in applications offering additional services or discounts to users coming from academic institutes.
Note: This API validates the email based on the domain name of the email address. This list of domains for academic institutes around the world is not exhaustive but it is constantly expanding. Another aspect to note is that this API only validates that an email belongs to an educational institute but it does not identify or detect if the email belongs to a student, faculty member, external contractors, or staff.
Try out the API in the API playground and see how the free Academic Email Validator API can help you validate emails through a simple API call.

Authentication

All API requests to ApyHub services need to be authenticated. Currently we support tokens or basic authentication mechanisms. You can generate and view your existing credentials from your workspace settings (on the left side of the navbar) and go to “API Keys".
Points to note:
  • Credential secrets are generated on the fly and are not stored in plain text, so on generating a credential please save the secrets somewhere safe.
  • Use the apy-token as the header parameter to pass the token.
  • Use the Authorization header to send the basic authentication credentials.
