Pricing FAQ

How are employees defined?

Employee is defined as any individual that is full-time or part-time faculty and staff. Student workers and graduate assistants are excluded from this definition.

How many student licenses can I get for free? 

For a limited time, educational institutions qualify for free student licenses if they purchase licenses for 100% of employees. The maximum student-employee ratio allowed for free student licenses is 10:1, which means you can get up to 10 free student licenses for every 1 faculty or staff license. If your institution’s student-employee ratio is larger, you’ll need to purchase additional employee licenses to stay within the 10:1 ratio.

If I deploy for all my faculty and staff, are alumni accounts included for free?

The maximum student-employee ratio allowed for free student licenses is 10:1, which means you can get up to 10 free student licenses for every 1 faculty or staff license. If you’d like to cover both student and alumni accounts, you may need to purchase additional employee licenses to stay within the 10:1 ratio.

Can an institution buy for specific seats only?
