Default Do I have to be a MUSIC student in order to buy the academic version of PT11?

I used to be a music student and I was enrolled as a music major at my local community college. My situation's changed and I'm now at a vocational school in a computer repair program, which is still at a state accredited institution. I just called Guitar Center and they sales guy told me that I needed to be a enrolled in a music program in order to be eligible. Is that true or not?

They never asked me as faculty exactly what I teach, just to verify that I teach. I would suspect the same to be true for students.

Keep in mind that Protools is used for other things besides music, including sound for film/video, radio and theatrical production, etc. so it wouldn't make sense to limit it to just music.

I work for a K-12 School district. I was eligible for, and purchased, the Academic Version of Pro Tools for Teachers.

Students only need to show verification of enrollment in an approved academic setting - program of study doesn't matter.

Hope this helps.

That must have changed as I too thought the policy was for those who were enrolled in a production related program.
