    Yes it will work, no you don't need an adapter since the new ACDs use DVI

    The DVI to ADC adapter is used to connect the DVI out on your mini to one of the old Apple displays..

    If your getting the 20" widescreen display it should connect right up to your mini without that adapter.

    You have to go through an education store page (education.apple.com) for your school, and to get to that page, and to check out, you have to click through a legal contract stating that you're a student at that college. So no, they don't check, however it's in your best interest not to lie.
