I wish to purchase for my high school son who is 17. Does this edition apply to him? The school email he uses is not a .edu one.

You have to provide some proof of his being a student. I don't know what all the possible kinds of proof are, but I would think a high school ID of some kind might be enough. If they want more, the school would probably give you a letter that would work. It is worth a little work to get this great price.

Notes on EDU validation:
If you purchased a boxed product from Amazon, open the box and follow the instructions inside to submit your information for validation.
If you purchased a download version from Amazon, the instructions for submitting the product code and validating your student eligibility are contained in a file called "IMPORTANT - How to validate and activate your product.pdf" that's included in the download.
If you use your school issued email address <yourname@yourschool.edu> from a qualified institution during the process, the validation is instant and no other documentation is needed.
If you have to submit documents it may take up to three business days to receive confirmation of your proof of eligibility and your serial number from Adobe. PLEASE READ: You can still install and use the product *immediately* by selecting the 30-Trial option during installation.

Hey Thomas, I certainly understand that issue. While the .edu email is the "easiest" way to verify, a copy of his school id (with the numbers blacked out) just his name is necessary) is usually suffice. hope that helps.

In my opinion all high schools should work. Use an email you often check because that is where they will send the number to you. Also don't buy the download version, its harder to return.

I believe this edition does apply to him, and I do believe you can get it working, but you will have to go through the process of dealing with the terrible customer service. Good luck.

I would just scan his school ID and have it ready, and be prepared to call Customer Service and sit on hold for ages.
