Our Commitment to Students—No Matter Where They’re Learning

By in Music Creation, Notation, Pro Mixing, Video Editing

Educating the next generation of creative professionals is a responsibility that Avid takes seriously, and with the coronavirus outbreak closing campuses across the globe, we want to make sure that students continue to have access to their creative tools outside the classroom.

We applaud the efforts of educators to keep classes going remotely, and we’re committed to playing our part in ensuring that students finish the school year on track.

Here’s our commitment to you and to your students: For qualifying educational institutions that use Media Composer, Pro Tools, or Sibelius in your classes, we will provide free three-month software licenses so that students can continue their education with as little disruption as possible.

How to Request Temporary Licenses

If your institution is an Avid Learning Partner, you should have already received instructions from the ALP team directly. You can contact ALP.Support@avid.com if you missed the communication or need more assistance.

For other educational institutions with active licenses for creative tools, please follow the instructions here.

Users will receive a registration code via email, which they must deposit in their My Avid account or at avid.com/register by April 17, 2020. The 90-day license will begin when you register the code.

What Students Can Do

Students, if you are hearing about this before your teachers, help us spread the word! If your school hasn’t contacted you about getting a free, temporary license, share this post with your teacher.

I came to Avid as a working editor over 9 years ago, and currently work in Avid Education. I am a developer on the official Media Composer curriculum, but best of all, get to work closely with Avid Certified Instructors worldwide to train and certify new users.
