Upgrade pricing: The update to Scrivener 3 is free for users who bought Scrivener 2 on or after 20th August 2017, and $25 for users who purchased any version of Scrivener for macOS before that. The upgrade fee is the same for both the regular and education licences. Only users who purchased from our store, or from a reseller that provides activation through our store (such as Amazon), are eligible for discounted update pricing on this page.

There is absolutely no difference between the academic licence and the standard licence other than you get a 12.5% discount. The licence you receive when you buy is identical to the one you would receive if you bought the regular licence, and there are no restrictions on use any more than on the regular licence.
Just choose the educational licence when buying.
Thanks for your interest in Scrivener!
All the best,

Thanks for considering Scrivener. There is absolutely no difference whatsoever between the educational licence and the regular licence. It's more accurately an "educational discount", really - it's the regular licence just with a discounted price for students and educators.
Hope that helps.
All the best,

The question was, if you buy an educational license now, will you be eligible for the upgrade discount to Scrivener 4. I believe the answer is no.
