Students can get over 68% off their Adobe Creative Cloud subscription. We explain how to take advantage of Adobe’s offer.
Between tuition and textbooks, being a student is expensive. Luckily, those interested in Adobe Creative Suite programs like Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, and Premiere Pro can take advantage of a 68% discount.
We explain how to get the Adobe student discount, as well as other questions you may have about pricing, eligibility, and the software included in Creative Cloud.
Is Adobe CC free for students?
The truth is that Adobe CC is not free for students, but it is available for a discount of 68.79% in Spain (or 65.27% in Mexico ), which is not bad at all.
Students (and teachers) can download the free 7-day trial from the Adobe website, which includes the full version of all the company’s apps.
You will only have to pay if you decide to continue using them after those 7 days. In addition, Adobe also offers a full refund on most of its plans if you decide to cancel them during the first 14 days after purchase.
How much does Adobe Creative Cloud for students cost?
For students, Adobe Creative Cloud is priced at €19.66 / MXN$399 per month. That includes the entire software suite. You can opt for the annual payment, which in this case has a cost of €235.95 / MXN$4,788 for the first year.
Adobe’s special student pricing allows Spanish students to save up to 68.79% (and up to 65.27% in Mexico), as the ‘All Apps’ plan is typically priced at €62.99/ MXN$1,149 per month or €725.85 / MXN$4,788 per year.

How to get the Adobe CC student discount
The easiest way to get the Creative Cloud student discount is to go directly to the Adobe page and complete the purchase with your academic email address (Adobe claims that doing so will “instantly accept your application”).
However, to benefit from the student discount, you must be at least 13 years old and be enrolled in:
- College or university
- Elementary or secondary school
- Home school
The institution in which you are enrolled must be a public or private university or university school that grants study certificates of at least two years. These include higher training centers, university initiation schools, or vocational training institutes.
Your center may include the Adobe discount from its own website.
How long does the Adobe CC student discount last?
The student promotion of €19.66 / MXN$399 per month is only for the first year, but don’t worry because, from then on, you also have a discount on the original price.
After those 12 months of promotion, the Adobe CC student price becomes €30.24 / MXN$649 per month or €362.75 / MXN$7,788 per year, which is still a 50% discount.
How does Adobe verify that you are a student?
Primarily, Adobe’s way of verifying that you are a student is through the academic email address you provide. In fact, as we have said before, you will need one to get the discount.
If you do not have one, Adobe will ask you for other information to prove it, such as a document issued by the center where you study. The said document must include the following:
- Your name
- The name of the institution
- the current date
Adobe specifies that all documents dated up to six months prior are considered current. These documents can be:
- Center identification card
- Report card
- Academic record
- Proof of enrollment
Those who are homeschooled must submit:
- A dated copy of the homeschooling statement of intent
- Current identification of membership in a home school association
- The dated proof of purchase of the curriculum for the current academic year
