    I was able to obtain a product key from my college for Windows 10 Education edition. Preferably I would like to not have to Boot Camp install Win8 and just go straight for Windows 10 from the get go. Can I download the x64 installer ISO and use my Education product key to install?

    Ask your college if there's a portal/site you can go to download the ISO.

    Others had a similar question in the windows world.

    Forgot about the bootcamp thingy. If your on a mac, you absolutely need bootcamp...unless you want to erase all your os x stuff. But, once you have windows installed via bootcamp, go to the bootcamp settings via control panel. In there, there will be an option to change target disk mode; change it from OS X to Windows so it will automatically start in windows when you reboot or boot your machine.

    It worked. I was able to clean install straight from the disk with the product key my school gave me.

    All it took was thirty minutes and I was dying to be back in the Mac interface. I felt like I was drowning trying to keep all my windows organized in Win10.

    That was short lived.
