distribution of student licenses

I'm freelancer, who installs free software (or trial) to end users for money. And non-free if they pay for it, of course.

Is it legal for me to register end users to Education Community and installing free student license software to their computer (when they agree with license and terms of use) and taking money for service (registering and installing software)?

Which terms allow this, and which are prohibit?

I don't work at school or something.

I can check end users for their student ID.

And I want to make money on software installations and activations (registering).

And I will inform end users that they can download, install, activate that software for free themselves.

Hi Icon_Error,


Our Education Community site and the Products that Students and Instructors can download from there are free. These Students or users are not to be charged nor should be charged with any installation, activation or registration assistance.


If they need assistance with Registration and Activation etc., we are more than happy to help them out with it.
