    I am a university instructor who wants to use ArcGIS in my class. I’ve confirmed my university does not yet have licenses for students. How can I get access to ArcGIS software for myself and my students?

    Outside the U.S., contact your distributor. 

    Why is Esri retiring the 21 day Education Trial?

    Esri expanded its small Learn ArcGIS temporary account offering, meant to support those using Learn ArcGIS tutorials, to address COVID’s impact on software access in spring 2020. Since then, Esri’s Learn ArcGIS team hosted and supported more than 800,000 temporary accounts for ArcGIS users and students who could no longer access ArcGIS from their workplace or university. As of  2023, these users have returned to work and university, respectively, and can once again use licenses held by their institutions.
