How does the educational (EDU) verification process work?

Send us your educational documents for verification, along with the reference code you get when purchasing an EDU license, and your Bitwig account info.

  • A scan of your student or faculty ID
  • If you do not have a student ID, please send a scan of your personal ID or passport, and an official copy of your current registered curriculum and a link to your school.
