    In order to allow only .edu emails for registration, do I need to exclude or blacklist every top level domain name, including regional? Or is there an easier way?

    Thanks

    you want to prevent all emails that end with .edu?

    Hi there,

    No, the opposite. I only want to allow registration from emails that end in .edu domain. Student registration only.

    Thanks again

    use this code temporarily, put it in the file (functions.php) of your active theme.
    in the next version of the plugin I will add this option, so do not forget to remove the code to the next version.
    the code:

        global $ben_____restricted_domain_emails;
        $ben_____restricted_domain_emails = false;
    		
        add_filter( 'user_registration_email', function( $email ) {
    		global $ben_____restricted_domain_emails;
    		
    		$BlackList = array('edu');
    		$scts = explode('.', $email);
    		$domains = $scts[count($scts)-1];
    		
    		if ( !in_array( $domains, $BlackList ) && $email != '' && !email_exists( $email ) ) {
    		$ben_____restricted_domain_emails = true;
    		}
    		
    		return $email;		
    	});
    
        add_filter( 'registration_errors', function( $errors, $login ) {
    		global $ben_____restricted_domain_emails;
    		
    		if ( $ben_____restricted_domain_emails )
    			$errors->add( 'invalid_email', __( '<strong>ERROR</strong>: Sorry, this email address is not allowed.' ) );
    			
    		return $errors;
    	}, 9, 2 );

    you can add other domain, example:
    $BlackList = array('edu','com','net');
