Am I eligible for the educational discount?

You are eligible for an educational discount if you are:

  • a student currently enrolled in full-time educational studies, ranging from primary school up to advanced degree programs.
  • a student in a part-time program that consists of 20 hours or more study time per week, or one that runs for 12 months or more. The area of studies is irrelevant.
  • a teacher who is currently employed full- or part-time at a school or university in any field. Part-time and private teachers must work at least 20 hours per week to qualify

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

How to verify your education status

  1. Check your eligibility
  2. Buy your Ableton product at the discounted price from your local music store or the Ableton web shop
  3. Verify your educational status (to show us that you really are a student or teacher)
  4. Install and authorize your software

Please note: The software won't run properly until you've verified your educational status. If you can't wait for the verification process to run its course, use the free 30-day license to make music while we verify. Verification normally takes just one to two days.
