I have a personal use file authorization. I thought that I could use that for the ArcGIS Pro? I am a student so do I need to have a new license issued for a student account?
According to ESRI ArcGIS for Personal Use comes with ArcGIS Pro.

However, it may be that you have instead a Student license authorization. The contents of that may vary depending upon your educational institution and for what class it is related to. As to whether it comes with ArcGIS Pro, that is harder to say. It seems like the most recent one comes with ArcGIS Pro, but if you received the software a while ago or for example with a book or Tutorial published a few years ago it may not have it.

Can you check to see what the exact name is for the license authorization? In other words, what product does it say it is. If the software authorization is through a school, you may have to check with the school/program that granted it to you for the particulars.

You institution may not have release Pro to the masses yet.
We waited for a while.
Contact your support person and if they are ready to deal with the issues, they may release it to you
Someone at your institution manages the student accounts and access to them while you are a student. You first contact would be the course instructor that you used the software for. In many institutions, their Libraries or IT departments manage this. If you are still an active student you normally are able to access software for download through your My Esri link in your profile a the top of this page.
