    from http://blogs.msdn.com/mithund/archive/2008/02/19/dreamspark.aspx

    To sign up: https://downloads.channel8.msdn.com/

    I am currently a student (just started back actually) at a local university - a smaller institution, and naturally it was not listed when I went to sign up - however, I used the 3rd party verification tool, entered the requested info and it immediately verified me as being a student (kind of scary, actually, as I have only been enrolled for a month)....and I received my confirmation email that I could start downloading.

    Enjoy!
