How to Receive the Educator Rate

Any member of an accredited educational institution (including instructors, program directors and purchasing departments) purchasing 10 or more CliftonStrengths for Students Top 5 access codes in a single transaction is eligible for a volume-based educator rate.

Through April 28, 2021:

  • Eligible educators can purchase 10 or more codes for $11.99* USD (up to 40% savings).

Starting April 29, 2021, we will be implementing a price increase and a tiered, volume-based educator rate:

  • 10-99 codes: $15.99* USD (up to 20% savings)
  • 100+ codes: $13.99* USD (up to 30% savings)

*Price varies by currency.

Note: Educator rates are based on the number of codes purchased in a single transaction. Educator rates are not cumulative for multiple orders or multiple accounts from the same organization.

How to check eligibility for the educator rate:

The educator rate is intended for codes that will be used for educational purposes with students, faculty and staff at accredited institutions recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, State Board of Education or similar regulating bodies. It applies to purchases of 10 or more codes in a single transaction.

We understand that not all eligible organizations use the "@[school].edu" email domain structure, including:

  • U.S.-based campuses or K-12 school districts with a different email domain structure than "@[school].edu" or "@[school].k12"
  • organizations that partner with campuses or K-12 school districts
  • non-U.S.-based degree-granting institutions of learning

We invite you to check your eligibility for the educator rate and to apply for consideration. If you have any questions, contact us.
