ArcGIS for student use at home

For ArcGIS Pro

  1. Put the executable (the install file) for ArcGIS Pro on a shared drive that all students can access.
  2. Your administrator should go into the ArcGIS Online organization and change all the student user types from Creator to GIS Professional Advanced.  This new user type comes with the license for Pro already bundled in.
  3. Have students download the ArcGIS Pro executable to their computer and install it.
  4. After installation have them start Pro.  It will prompt them to log into their ArcGIS Online organization.  When they log in, they will be granted their Pro license through ArcGIS Online automatically.  Easy as pie.

For ArcMap

  1. Put the executable (the install file) for ArcMap on a shared drive that all students can access.
  2. Create an ArcMap license file that times out after 1 year and put it on the same shared drive.
  3. Have students download the ArcMap executable AND license file to their computer and install it.
  4. During installation they will be prompted for a license file.  Instruct them to use the license file they downloaded from the shared drive.
