Adobe Student Software is sold exclusively in the here at the Education Store at This is by far the best deal on and quite honestly, it’s very easy to qualify for this deal.  As long as you’re a full or part-time student of ANY AGE, you can be eligible for the discounted pricing. This offer is also open to most professors, teachers, and educators (see site for full details). Qualification is pretty easy as all you need to do is to show your a photocopy of a valid, current school ID that includes your name, date, and a photo.  So in theory, you can run down to your local community college, sign up for a yoga class, get your student ID, and save $1,700 on Master Collection (not that we recommend using/beating the system).  Yes!  Don’t have a college, university, or high school ID?  Then see details on student eligibility.

Keep in mind, Adobe student software is the EXACT SAME software as the regular full editions. You don’t get anything less or a stripped down versions vs. the regular versions as you might expect at up to an 80% discount. Plus, once you graduate your software does not expire and once the future CS7 versions come out, you can upgrade at the discounted “upgrade” price. Downloading your CS6 order directly from will also cut the shipping and handling cost from your order.

So how much do you save with discounted Adobe student pricing?  The most is obviously on Master Collection CS6 at $1700 off the retail price.  But paying almost $900 for the suite is still a bit pricey.  Depending on your needs, usually one of the Design or Production Premium suites will suffice – Each priced at a cool $449.
