What is the difference between the Unity Student plan and the Educational Grant License?



  • Brent Chamberlain

    How can I add educational licenses as seats in my organization?

  • Jarvis

    Hello Brent, thanks for your comment!

    Just to let you know, our Educational Grant Licenses work a little differently to our standard 'online' licenses or those provided by the Student Plan. Educational licenses are not managed online so do not have the same seat based functionality.

    In order to activate and manage educational licenses, you would need to activate them manually/offline using a command line process. When you received your Educational licenses you should have been provided with some steps on how you can get up and running with them.

    I hope this helps!

    How do I remove Educational License seats from classroom computers that are broken/reformatted?  I would like to re-use these Educational Licenses in our new classroom computers.

    Hi Makmal FTSM

    Thanks for your question.

    In order to remove the Educational License seats from your classroom, you need to contact Support for clearing the existing activations. We do not have for the moment an online way for you to remove the licenses in the school machines.  

    Note: when contacting Support, please provide the license serial number and the machine names you want to clear.

    Hope this is helpful.

    All the best.
