Is academic access not free?

I was told by Oliver (thanks, Oliver) that academic use of Confluence is free. However, I got a note from someone named Leroy who said it is not free but is a 75% discount. What?

I'm looking forward to having my classes at Austin Community College use Confluence to show their projects and comment.

Hi David.You might be looking for a Classroom license.

As explained in this license is free if you are running the Data Center deployment.

If you would like to use it on the Atlassian Cloud, then you can get a 75% discount.

That page I shared would be your starting point to request the license.

I hope that helps.

Kind regards

They're both wrong-ish.

There is a free version of Cloud Confluence, with reduced functionality and a limit of 10 active users.  There's no rules about who can sign up.

Academic users can get a 50% discount for Data Centre (not Cloud) installations

Charitable non-profits can get 75% off their Cloud subscription (from memory, they also have to be not a government organisation, not commercial, not academic and secular)

Cloud licencing rules are at
