Saving to different programs

My school has Revit Architecture 2013
and can't upgrade it until this summer. Will I be able to save my file in
Revit Architecture 2013 at school and transfer it home to Revit 2013 or
2014? The real question is, will I be able to save back to Revit
Architecture 2013 from Revit 2014 or Revit 2013? Are the programs
compatible?  Thank you

You cannot open any Revit file in a previous version

 

If you want to work on your school model (2013) at home, i would reccommend installing 2013 at home. 

If you open a Revit 2013 file in Revit 2014 and save the file, it now becomes  Revit 2014 file and can no longer be used in any previous version.

Thanks.  I just have one more question. So I save my file at school in Revit Architecture 2013, and I open it at home in Revit 2014.  Can I save it to the same file type as Revit Architecture 2013?  Or for the files to be compatible, do I need to have Revit 2013 at home instead of Revit 2014?  Thanks for your help.
