(I'm sorry for my low English skill)
I resistered Azure for Student yesterday and created a RHEL virtual machine but I had some troubles during setup.
So, I decided to create a new virtual machine.
After I deleted the previous one (and its resource group), I saw the "Create a virtual machine" page and found cost description in Size pull-down.
Even in this case, can I create and use a new virtual machine for free?

    Hello @Ryusei

    Azure for students comes with 100$ credits. You can deploy 2 B1S VMs (one Windows, one Linux) and run it for 750 hours for free of cost. This might be 24 hours a day up to 750 hours or the total 750 free hours spread across 12 months period time (by turning it on only when used) is up to your choice. Below is the eligible VM size for student credit subscription.

    When creating the free VMs you have to ensure you choose the image size and OS disc size that meets the free criteria as mentioned below.

    You will start seeing charges when any one of the below scenario occurs:

    • Exhausted 750 free hours of free usage.
    • Instance image size and OS disc size does not meet the above free criteria.

    Please find the below useful Azure free services link for your reference: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-in/free/students/

    Divya.
