Account management for education

Students and educators installing products assigned to them


If your teacher or colleague assigns an Autodesk product to you, you will receive an email from Autodesk telling you which products have been assigned and where to download them. Follow the steps below, depending on if you already have an Autodesk Account or not.

 

You can install the software on up to three devices. Assigned users have access to software until the educator who made the product assignment unassigns access or their eligibility for the Education plan lapses.

 

Note: Your educator or colleague may assign you the role of secondary admin to help add and assign students and manage teams. See User management admin roles for more information.


If you do not have an account

If you don't have an Autodesk Account, you will need to create one before you can download your products.

  1. In the Autodesk email you receive when you are assigned a product, follow the instructions to create an Autodesk Account. Enter your first name, surname, email address and password. The email field contains the email address where you received your product assignment. It is also your new Autodesk user ID.
  2. Tick the box to agree to the Autodesk Terms of Use and Privacy Policy and click Create Account.
  3. Click Done in the confirmation message.
  4. Go to Products and Services in the navigation bar.
  5. Locate your product and click Download Now or View Downloads.
  6. Follow the on-screen instructions to download Windows or Mac software.
  7. After you download the .exe or .dmg file, follow the on-screen instructions to install.

Keep your Autodesk user ID and password in a safe place, such as a password management application. It is required to access product downloads from your account and, in some cases to sign-in to Autodesk products.
