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. Online courses are also eligible.
  • 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 subscription- based classes

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.
