What is an Education Subscription?

This subscription option allows your university, college, or school district to use unlimited amounts of FME Desktop and FME Server, within student operations and facilities management, for a single annual price. The amount paid is based solely on the size of your student population. Now all your departments can use FME at no extra cost, saving you money and speeding up projects as compared to one-off license purchases.

Note: Schools wanting to use FME as part of their educational curriculum are eligible to apply for free licenses for teaching and instruction Your students, unfunded researchers, and recent graduates are also eligible to apply for their own free licenses.

Benefits of Subscription Pricing for Educational Institutions

Use More FME at a Lower Price

Since budgets are often fixed, this lets your team use as much FME as you need with zero limits on FME Desktop and FME Server licenses.

“Free” FME for All Other Departments

For one annual price, your entire organization can use FME, allowing other departments to use FME at no additional cost.

Leverage OpEx Funds

Instead of a CapEx item, population-based subscription pricing is an operating expense.

Predictable Budgeting

Take the guess out of budgeting. Simply pay the amount matching the size of your student population.

Eliminate Time Lag on Projects

Since you have unlimited FME, your projects will never get delayed waiting on licenses.

Reduced Procurement Costs

Save your finance team time by opting for a single subscription instead of multiple one-offs.
