Adobe offers both students and teachers a price discount on many of its products, including single programs and full software suites, as well as special group licensing discounts for institutions such as schools, as of 2015. The exact amount of the discount may vary over time and between retailers.
Adobe's education discounts are valid for qualifying products that appear through its online store, typically focusing on the latest iteration of the software. To receive one of these discounts, students and educators must meet the appropriate verification steps, either during the checkout process for an immediate discount or after the fact for a refund of the price difference. The quickest way to prove eligibility is to enter a school-issued email address during the checkout process, as this allows for instant verification. Other options include providing Adobe with a copy of a school identification card, a transcript for students or a pay stub for educators.
It is also possible to purchase Adobe products with an education discount through participating school bookstores, though these stores may not offer Student or Teacher Editions for every software product. Educators looking to make purchases on an institutional level must shop through the Adobe website or by calling the company's toll-free sales number. These purchases require additional verification from the school administration.
