    Most likely your student azure account expired, or you used up the $100 credit. You can check its status.

    if the credit is used up you can run other free services, but you will need a new subscription plan to enable the sql service. This new plan (typically pay as you go) will cost you money.

    if the subscription expired, then if you are still a student you can renew once a year and get another $100


    note: sql serverless is a much cheaper option than an actual sql service.

    Hi @Anas Baig

    Most probably your subscription is in disabled state. Please check your subscription.

    And here is a detailed document on "How to Reactivate a disabled Azure subscription."

    Thank you!
