How to set up a school email (.edu extension) on a Samsung Galaxy S4?

I have my regular Gmail account set up in my phone but I can't add my school account because it can't be verified. Any idea?

Does your school use Gmail for its students' email addresses? In other words, do you have to log into a Gmail account for your university email? If not, you will not be able to use the Gmail app and instead will have to use the regular Email app and set up your account with your school's information.
