College students on a budget now have the opportunity to have private label grocery items delivered for a low monthly price. Delivery service DoorDash has launched DashPass for Students, a new membership plan for college students that is half the price of the standard DashPass.

For just $4.99 a month, DashPass for Students offers delivery of thousands of eligible restaurants, convenience and grocery stores, and local and national retailers.

DashPass for Students members will enjoy access to always-on benefits and perks including unlimited $0 delivery fees on eligible orders over the minimum subtotal plus 10% off order subtotals year-round from reduced service fees, 5% DoorDash credits back on every eligible Pickup order, and members-only promotions and DashPass exclusive menu items.

The DashPass for Students membership is eligible for all undergraduate and graduate students at accredited colleges and universities in the U.S. First-time DashPass members can enjoy a free 30-day trial. Students can also choose the Annual Student Plan option for $48 a year for more savings.

"Access to convenient, fast, and affordable ways to get everything you need is key for busy students on the go," said Kofi Amoo-Gottfried, CMO at DoorDash. "With the launch of DashPass for Students, we're excited to change the game for students with a plan that's designed specifically for them and provides access to everything from late night study snacks and grocery items to school supplies and dorm essentials."

DoorDash has launched a multi-platform marketing campaign to celebrate the launch of the DashPass for Students membership titled "So Worth It". DashPass currently has over 10 million members globally.
