Adobe Illustrator does not come in a Student Edition by itself, but is available with a student discount as part of the Creative Cloud Complete Plan or Photography Plan software suites. Adobe sells both plans by the year with the option of prepaying annually or paying monthly.
As of 2015, Adobe offers student discounts to any student over the age of 13. Students must actively attend college, university, primary school or secondary school. To qualify for the discount, students should provide proof of enrollment or use a school-issued e-mail address when signing up. Homeschooled students are eligible for the discount by providing proof that they are actively homeschooling.
