There are so many professional skills students can develop as early as high school. Allowing them to jump right into professional fields of design and production. Many of these involve the use of programs from companies like Adobe. Programs that may come free within the classroom, but once the student is outside of the classroom, this isn’t always the case. Although there are some free alternatives out there, students may want to keep to the programs they trust and are familiar with.
This is where student discounts become incredibly lucrative. Companies like Adobe want students to remain within their product ecosystem, so they typically offer discount options to help make this easier for them. Especially since your typical student isn’t working full-time to be able to afford expensive luxuries.
Adobe offers students over 60% off its Creative Cloud. A subscription program that gives users access to all of Adobe’s products. This includes titles like Photoshop, Premiere Pro, After Effects, InDesign, Illustrator, Acrobat Pro, and more. A very powerful toolbox of applications.
Typically around $52.99/mo, the Adobe Creative Cloud is actually nicely priced out for professionals that rely upon this software. However, students can subscribe for only $19/mo, making it much more budget-friendly. All you need is a student email address (using a .edu or .k12 domain for example). If you do not have a school-issued email address, then you will be asked to provide other forms of proof. Such as a (current) report card, transcript, or student ID. Adobe has its ways to make sure you are who you say you are.
As long as you can prove your status as a student at the school you attend, you will be able to take advantage of this wonderful discount.
