    I had a friend just order her first mac pro online at the Australian apple store - Went into the Education store clicked the relevant other accredited education institute and clicked agree to go into the edu store - configured a machine and then checked out and ordered. The order was confirmed and that was that... At no time did she need to verify with her staff number or provide proof of employment??

    What the...?:rolleyes:

    Apple does random checks of people ordering through online EDU stores.

    Apple asks for confirmation of eligibility at random. Some people here have been asked to provide details, some haven't.

    Yeah, it really is based on trust (although you agree that they can check you out)...however, you can get a MUCH higher discount from inside a school/university :)

    Do you have to be full time student?

    I am college grad going back to community college to get some courses on areas I want to expand on? I want to know since I am not sure, checked apple but wants minimum credits but I graduated from that school.

    No...Apple makes no distinction between full and part time students.
