Default Does the Pro Tools 11 Academic License include a Pro Tools 10 License as well?

I plan on grabbing an academic copy but before I made the investment, I wanted to know if it included a copy of Pro Tools 10 as well.

The website stated all Pro Tools 11 purchases included Pro Tools 10, but wanted to be sure.

I actually need Pro Tools 10 more than 11 right now so I wanted to make sure I didn't need to purchase a regular license in this case.

Thanks in advance

Yes, both licenses and installers for Pro Tools 11 and 10 are included.

Sticky: How to Activate and Download Pro Tools 11:

See the following Knowledge Base article to guide you through the process of activating and downloading the Pro Tools 11 software:

Activate and Download Your Product: Pro Tools 11

Includes installation info for Mac and Windows, and a link to a tutorial video from Avid Support about how to use the new iLok License Manager.

Avid support has also made some newer tutorials on this Knowledge Base article:
Avid Product Activation Video Tutorials

Important Additional Notes:
All Pro Tools 11 licenses are a single "bundled" license that includes both Pro Tools 11 and 10 licenses.

When you activate your upgrade to Pro Tools 11, it will replace your Pro Tools 10 license with the Pro Tools 11 and 10 bundle license.

Please note, you will need an iLok 2 (the rectangular one, not the original key shaped iLok) for the Pro Tools 11/10 license.

If you choose to use Pro Tools 11 and 10 on the same system, you will need to update to Pro Tools 10.3.6 or higher for coinstallation with Pro Tools 11.

Both of the latest installers for Pro Tools 10 and 11 will be in your Avid account in Your Products under "Pro Tools 11" when you complete that activation/upgrade process:

Don't forget to install the additional plug-ins and instruments that are included with Pro Tools 11:
  • AIR Creative Collection 11.x (Mac) - for Pro Tools 11.x on Mac OS X
  • AIR Creative Collection 11.x (Win) - for Pro Tools 11.x on Windows
  • Avid Virtual Instruments 10.3 Installer (Mac) - for Pro Tools 10.x on Mac OS X
  • Avid Virtual Instruments 10.0 Installer (Win) - for Pro Tools 10.x on Windows
And the Big Fish audio loops if you don't already have those.
