Your school may qualify you for a special academic discount on an Evernote Business account. Even if you are a 'non-traditional' student your educational institution may be eligible. It is worth taking a look!

Usually, a professional account focused on teams, Evernote Business includes features found in the Premium pricing tier while offering additional team-oriented tools.

That makes this a compelling deal to check out if you are a student, teacher, parent, or administrator.

How Much Is This Academic Discount?

Evernote Business may be available for qualifying institutions. In the past, these discounts have been as high as 75%.

About Evernote Business as Compared to Other Plans

Evernote offers free, Premium, and Business plans which offer varying access to desktop, mobile, and online versions of the popular note app.

  • The Free account is a general note solution for personal or casual use.
  • Premium is about $5 USD monthly and great for solo business owners and other professionals. It offers valuable extras including PDF annotations, searchable text in images, and passcode lock.
  • Evernote for Business includes everything Premium does and then some. This tier is normally about $10 USD monthly and great for teams, or in this case, classes and study groups. With the discount, either you or your school could therefore pay about $2.50 USD monthly per person. Again, all discount rates are subject to Evernote's current offers.

How Is the Discount Granted?

This discount requires that you or your school pays the full amount of the first payment, with a credit applied retroactively. After that, accounts will be charged 25% for all following payments thanks to the 75% discount, for example.

What About Privacy Issues?

Evernote has a policy regarding minors that school will need to agree to. Basically, schools are responsible for divulging privacy considerations to their students. The Evernote sites linked to in this article will connect you with this information. Schools also assume responsibility for making sure use of the product is under the supervision of guardians, parents, and/or school administrators.

Evernote can even ask for schools to provide them with consent forms, so this is definitely something you will want to look into, to make sure it works for your organization, and ultimately, you students and their guardians.

Eligibility Overview

While those interested should visit the main Evernote site for complete terms and details, here are the general guidelines for eligibility.

You need to be seeking this discount for at least 5 users.

Evernote stipulates on the site I have linked to just below:

"Qualifying educational institutions are defined as public or private K-12, vocational school, correspondence school, religious education school, junior college, college, university, or scientific or technical school, degree granting school or university which is organized and operated exclusively for the purpose of teaching its enrolled students and is not affiliated with any private or public corporation or business entity. Degree-granting schools must require not less than the equivalent of two years of full-time study; schools must be accredited by an accrediting agency nationally recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education or, in the case of public K-12 institutions, recognized or approved by the Department of Education of the State in which it is located."

To apply, you need to provide the school name, contact information, school's website, and other details or documentation.

Please note that you may be asked to set up an Evernote account first, in order to apply for this discount.

Find exact requirements, including policies regarding minors and how institutions must obtain parental permissions for children under the age of 13, by visiting this Evernote for Schools site, which may direct you to an Evernote for Business post.
