The Education Online Store sells Adobe titles that are available in Education versions. Some products are available as box versions only, while others offer an option to purchase a download version. The education software functions identically to the retail versions.
In order to make a purchase from the Education Online Store you must fall into one of the following categories:
A student enrolled in grades K-12 at an accredited public or private primary or secondary school providing full-time instruction.
A full- or part-time student enrolled at an accredited higher education institution.
A full- or part-time faculty or staff member employed by an accredited K-12 or accredited higher education institution.
A perfect companion to the Apple Back To School Promotion
On May 27 Apple launched the 2009 Back To School Promotion that offers a free iPod when students or faculty purchase a new Mac. Abode's Student Editions are a perfect companion to the Apple promotion in that students can receive upwards of a few thousand dollars in savings versus the non-academic retail pricing.
These discounts are the ideal option for students who are enrolled in creative programs or majors such as art, graphic design, film, and so on. It's also a great option for student switchers who have historically used the PC versions of Adobe's software.
