Esri Software for Students at Institutions with a Site License

ArcGIS Desktop (ArcGIS Pro and ArcMap) Software for Students

Esri offers ArcGIS Desktop software for use by students at colleges and universities. Students can purchase a 12-month license of ArcGIS Desktop for $100 a year, and students at qualifying institutions may be eligible for a 12-month license at no cost as part of the Esri Education Site License Program.

If you're a Student
Contact your instructor to see if you qualify for a free student license as part of your institution's Esri Site License, or contact to purchase a student license.

If you're an Instructor or Esri Site License Coordinator
Instructors and Site License Coordinators at institutions with an Esri Education Site License may request software for students at no cost. Instructors/Site License Coordinators will be responsible for distributing software to students and providing technical support.

The student software codes will allow the download of ArcGIS Pro and ArcMap desktop software. To use ArcGIS Pro, students must be allocated a named user license from the ArcGIS Online subscription managed by the site license. The student software code will only authorize ArcMap for 1 year.
