Eligibility requirements for educational licenses

You are eligible for an educational discount if you:

  • are a student age 13 or older currently enrolled in full-time educational studies
  • are a student age 13 or older in a part-time program that consists of 20+ hours study time per week, or one that runs for 12 months or more
  • attended a dedicated Ableton Live Course (weekend workshops are excluded)
  • are a teacher who is currently employed full- or part-time (20+ hours/week) at a school or university in any field

To verify your status, you can upload one of the following items in your Ableton.com account after purchasing an EDU license:

  • a valid student ID with expiration date or current term clearly displayed
  • a school transcript or enrollment letter
  • a teacher's work ID with a current term shown 
  • an employment verification letter from the school on official letterhead

If there is ever any disagreement on educational status documents, we offer a full four-week money back guarantee.

Eligibility for alumni and former teachers
Educational licenses require a current student enrollment or teaching verification in order to authorize the purchase.

Because of this, graduated students or former teachers are not eligible for the offer.

However, we can offer a grace period for students one month after graduation, and for teachers one month after the end of their employment contract.

Eligibility for students taking online courses
Students attending online schools on a part time basis of 20+ hours per week meet the study requirements for educational licenses. 

Please note monthly subscription classes, which can be cancelled at any time, such as students of Lynda (http://www.lynda.com), do not meet the necessary requirements for our educational discount.
