Ok I have Studio 8 and am wanting to up grade to CS3 but the problem is I have the student edition of 8 and I just graduated and am wanting to purchase the non student version but Im wondering if I can just upgrade or will I have to purchase the full package?

Thanks

lol.... good question.

Wouldnt you try and get the student edition if you can. I mean it'll save you hundreds of dollars.

Otherwise bite the bullet and burn a hole in your wallet

Q. Can students order Upgrade Plan for their licenses?

A. No. Student licenses are treated like retail (shrinkwrap) licenses, which do not offer Upgrade Plan. Students may purchase commerical upgrades for their licenses when new versions of products are released.

So is that a yes? Thats kind of a confusing statement.

So I can pay the $499.00 upgrade price?

i would have thought you can only upgrade from student - student and likewise for 'normal' versions. why not contact adobe/look on the adobe site?

If your no longer a student then no, you can't have a student's licence.

Student licence is for students..:D
Adobe has recently announced the NEW Adobe Creative Suite 3 range. Students or staff members who purchased the current versions post-announcement (27/03/2007) are eligible for a FREE upgrade to the new CS3 range when they begin shipping. Students will need to contact Adobe Customer Services for fulfilment of the upgrade.

Student Eligibility:

Students enrolled at an accredited public or private primary or secondary school providing full-time instruction. Full or part time students enrolled at Higher Education Establishments defined as accredited public or private university or college that grants degrees requiring not less than the equivalent of two (2) years of full-time study.
Customers will only be able to register one copy of each product in a 12 month period.
The box only contains the product CD and a form, which the student needs to complete and send to Adobe to receive the serial number via e-mail. The box does not contain a serial number or manuals for the program.
Product licenses are limited to one per customer. This license may only be used on a privately-owned computer. The product may not be used for commercial purposes.What is considered proof of student status?

Students must provide a valid, current student ID that includes name, date, and a photo. If you do not have a current student ID with name, date, and photo, you must instead provide a valid photo ID and corroborating evidence of current enrolment:

- Official, current non-photo student ID with name and date
- Official, current school transcript indicating name of school and student
- Official, current school tuition bill indicating name of school and student
- Official, current report card indicating name of school and student
- Other official dated proof of enrolment
Actually its not you that gets the licence its your tutor as far as I can tell.

i don't want a student license again. I'm just wondering if I can get any discount for purchasing the commercial license. Or upgrading from student to commercial.

Thanks Dave!

M1A: listen to me..:D

You prolly only get a discount as a STUDENT..alrighty?

Register at Adobe and then contact them with your question but I think you need to buy from scratch, only if you bought a full then upgrade do you get a discount but I could be wrong.

Read the above because untill you do no posts will be added from me anyway, you asked yesterday the same question and my answer is still the same. If your not a student then you have no longer any rights to cash offers on the Adobe family software.

RESOLVED

none of this answered my question...all this is about is eligible student license's. I said "I GRADUATED FROM COLLEGE" (right there shows I'm no longer a student) "I WANT TO PURCHASE A COMMERCIAL LICENSES" (there shows I no longer want a student edition.)

but its cool I got it figured out. I love you all :mrgreen:
