How do I verify my Academic Copy of Pro Tools?

Students and educators who wish to purchase individual education versions of Pro Tools will be asked to provide proof of eligibility. Once your eligibility has been verified, you will receive your academic license for your software. Check Avid’s eligibility guidelines to see if you qualify.

  • Delivered by download: If you purchased an electronic copy, your activation code is located within the Software Activation Instructions email from your Sweetwater Sales Engineer.

Step 2: Verify Eligibility

Register with Identit-e and enter your new verification code here. Once Identit-e has accepted your academic eligibility request they will provide a final activation code to be used within your Avid account.
