VMware Academic Program Terms and Conditions

Are you eligible?

In order to acquire VMware software at an academic discount, you must be an Eligible Educational End User to use the VMware Software. "Eligible Educational End Users" means students, faculty, staff and administration attending and/or working at an educational institutional facility (i.e. college, university, public or private K-12 schools) as well as parents or legal guardian buying on behalf of a child who is a student attending or accepted to a qualifying academic institution.

If you are under 18, you may buy products on the VMware online store only with the involvement of a parent or guardian. VMware reserves the right to refuse service, terminate accounts, remove or edit content, or cancel orders in their sole discretion.

Verification Requirements:

In order to purchase selected products through the VMware academic store, individuals are required to enter their academic institution name and e-mail address.

VMware audits this data to insure that academic purchases are only made by eligible participants. If VMware determines that you were not eligible to purchase from the VMware Academic Store, you authorize VMware to charge your credit card or Paypal account for the difference in price between the public retail price of the same product (published on VMware.com) and the price you paid on the date you placed the order.
