Is Gliffy Online free for students or non-profit organizations?

Are you considering Gliffy for use as an academic or non-profit group?

Gliffy is pleased to offer active students a free, fully functional Professional (single user) Gliffy Online account for a period of 4 years. To qualify, your email must contain an edu or ac marker in the domain or sub-domain. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide alternative verification steps.

To obtain a free student account with Gliffy, simply sign up to Gliffy using your schools email address that contains either the .edu or .ac marker in the domain or sub-domain. An EDU or AC email address is required for a Gliffy Online student account. Once you have signed up, wait for the email verification email to appear (if you are not finding the email in your inbox check your emails Spam\Junk folder). Verifying your account by using the link in the verification email immediately transitions your account into a student account. You can verify that your account was converted to the 4-year free student account via the counter in the top right of your Gliffy screen there you will see how many days you have until the trial expires. So, the day the account is converted to a student account the counter will show 1461 days.

Staff of academic institutions or non-profit organizations qualify for a 50% discount on Gliffy Team (multi-user) accounts. This staff discount is only applicable to Team accounts and is not valid for Professional (single user) accounts. To receive your 50% discount email using your academic institutions or non-profit organizations email address with your request for the discount and include your Gliffy Online Account ID.

If you need to create an account, please see the directions here.
