Options are: Premium or Professional, DVD or Download, Full Retail version or upgrade. You will need a .edu e-mail address. You don't have to confirm if you are a student or not with the e-mail, so as long as you know someone who has one, you could probably place the order. Orders will ship on 10/22/2009.
