Why does it say 'free licence for educators when it is not?


#1

I get emails from sketchup stating: ’ We offer Pro licenses to educators for free ’ or ’ Claim your free educator license now
But when I click on the links I find out it is NOT for free… anywhere… but costs 50 bucks a year!

So why are we being lied to, in order to bait us into buying??

and actually I think IT SHOULD BE FREE! proffessional programs like substance painter, maya etc. offer REAL FREE licences for educators and students alike! I find this policy is were bad advertisment for sketchup… discouraging myself and others from even properly trying it!

SketchUp IS available FREE OF CHARGE to educators in the U.S.!

Click on “Cost of a License” and then click “Request Educator License” unless you are a school IT administrator seeking network licenses.

For educators outside of the U.S. click the following link:

SketchUp Pro IS free for educators. I’ve been getting a free license for many years (I teach SU at community college). You need to get the license from an educational reseller, NOT from SU directly. You need a school email address, and some proof of employment at the school, such as a pay stub. You do need to reapply for the license each year. Good luck!
