I would like to know if I am eligible to upgrade to either CC or CS6 from CS5 Student Ed.
I tried going through the CC sign up and it said I'm ineligible.
I am considering buying CS6 outright but want to know if I can make the upgrade before pulling out my credit card.
You can definitely upgrade from the CS5 Student version to the CS6 perpetual license version by paying the upgrade price
However, the promotional deal for joining CC at the discounted rate for CS3-CS6 owners does not apply to Educational versions.
