Renewal of student discount

Verify your education status to continue with the discounted plan

Adobe provides an education discount on Creative Cloud All apps plan. This discount is offered exclusively to enrolled students and university staff. After a student graduates from school, the student receives a grace year on the education price.  

Graduated students receive an email notification about the upcoming price increase thirty days before the contract renewal date.

The notification includes information about: 

If the education status is not verified after the grace year, the subscription is upgraded to a higher non-education price on the contract renewal date.


If you verify your education status after you upgrade to a non-education price, contact Adobe Customer Care to switch back to the student price.
