EDU Version 3.5 and Grace Period

Hey everyone,
I hope you all had a great christmas.
I have some questions about buying the EDU Version of Dorico.

  1. If I buy the EDU Version and I graduate, what will happen to my EDU Version? Can I upgrade with the money which is left to get the non-EDU-Version?
  2. If I get it right, every license for Dorico 3.5 bought at the moment, will get the permanent upgrade to Dorico 4 for free. Does this also apply to Dorico 3.5 Pro EDU to Dorico 4 Pro EDU?

Edit: 3. If I use Dorico 3.5 with an USB-Dongle on multiple devices. Will I be able after getting the upgrade to Dorico 4 to use it with the eLicenser-Software instead of the Dongle?

Thank you in advance,

If I not mistaken, as soon as you buy an upgrade, it will no longer be the Edu version. You’ll own full Dorico Pro (and upgrades will be regular price)

Strictly speaking, there isn’t an “education version” but merely education pricing. I’m not aware that there is a significant difference in price for updates anyway. The discount is typically on the front end; ie: when you first buy the product. Updates are always a lower tier of cost, even for non-education customers.

If you buy Dorico Pro 3.5 at the education price now, you will indeed be entitled to a free update to Dorico Pro 4 when it is released early next year. Dorico 4 will use the new Steinberg Licensing system that will replace both the Soft- and USB-eLicensers, and you will be able to activate Dorico 4 on up to three computers, regardless of whether you are using the Soft- or USB-eLicenser now.
