Educational DIscount

Hello there! I applied for an Educational Discount a few days ago. Yesterday i have also e-mailed support and wrote a message on the official Facebook page of FabFilter and still got no update on my application. How long does this usually take?...

I really want to buy a couple of plug-ins and i kind of need them asap, but still don't want to miss a 50% discount opportunity..

I'm having an issue applying for the educational discount. I submitted the application over a month ago when I downloaded the 30-day trial period and still have not received a response. I would like to purchase and continue using the filters so I sent in another application yesterday and sent another email but again no response. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

My demo for Pro Q 3 just ran out and I really want to purchase it ASAP. I submitted an education application and was wondering how long it usually takes to get a response? I'm in quite a time crunch.

Thank you!

I submitted a request for an educational discount a couple of months ago, and haven't heard anything back yet.

I submitted a new request today and hope you can look over it soon.


Christopher — Apr 24, 2019

@Anton: Can you resubmit your request? It seems like we didn't get your original application: www.fabfilter.com/shop/educational-discounts

@Christopher: We've received and approved your new request today.

I applied several times for the educational discount and I also sent out a couple of emails to the help address with no avail. Is there anyway someone may be able to check on the status of my request?

Thank you!

I re-submitted today for the educational discount since I thought the request I previously done weeks ago didn't work somehow!

Thanks for your attention!

Hey Fabfilter,

I submitted my educational discount rate on Monday of this week, was wondering how long it usually takes to get that checked out.


Kev — Aug 15, 2019

Hello Fabfilter!

I applied for a student discount twice and I haven't gotten a response! I want to buy the compressor and EQ for my audio engineering classes, but I can't afford both unless I have the discount. I hope you can help me resolve this issue. Thank you!

How many different computers can I install the plug ins on if purchasing an educational license ?

Paul — Nov 6, 2019

Hello fabfilter

I put the information to create my student account and I put my certificate of schooling but I did not have a return by email.

is this a technical problem and would I get an answer soon?
Thanks you

I tried applying for the educational discount but kept getting an error saying that i did not fill out the form completely but I obviously did. Tried multiple time and no success.

Can someone confirm that my application went through and is getting reviewed?

Sorry for a maybe stupid question, but educational discounts are avalaible for every student or just for students enrolled in music related courses?
Example: I'm studying japanese at university, can I apply for edu discount?

Pietro — May 1, 2020

Hi Pietro,

Our student discount is available for ALL student, not just those enrolled in music related courses.


Ralph (FabFilter) — May 2, 2020

Thanks for reply! I applied :)

Pietro — May 3, 2020

Hi FabFilter-Team,

I applied for Educational Discount a week ago and haven't got any response. I also resubmitted this week, just in case there was a problem but I still got no response.
Is there a problem with my appliance?


Robin — May 3, 2020


I hope you and your family/friends are staying healthy and safe!

I sent in an application last night but didn't receive a confirmation email or anything, just want to make sure it was received.


Evan — May 3, 2020


I applied for the educational discount, and need the plugins ASAP for a session today and a PT session I am receiving with the plugins in it. How fast could I get it approved? Thank you!!

Samantha — May 3, 2020

Hello all!

I am desperately trying to apply for the educational discount, but every Time I complete the form I am getting a 404 error page not found screen after I click submit. I have not gotten a confirmation email from fabfilter and I don't know if I should email a hand written application email. Can anyone help me? until then I will continue to fill out and submit the same application and hope it goes through!
