Verify your education status to continue with the discounted plan

Adobe has an education discount of 60% on Creative Cloud All Apps. 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 support to switch back to the student price.
