Educational Licensing - Teaching using UE4
I've been looking around and researching about using UE4 in a teaching environment (we've also been looking at Unity3D and such), I'm part of a small community college that wants to teach game programming as part of a greater game programming pipeline and we are currently researching options.
As far as I can tell there are no costs associated with installing, teaching, and creating any games on UE4 for any Academic Institution besides the $3,000 quarterly fee and 5% royalty fee for any games commercially launched, however I guess I still want to make sure of any tangible upfront costs before I go make a proposal and case for using UE4 over say Unity3D.
So my overall questions are:
-What are the licensing costs for installing UE4 in an Academic setting (we need at the minimum 42 seats for now).
-Any licensing costs for Educators?
-License costs for individual student use (which as far as I can tell are free).
Thank you for your time.

To echo Canon,Unreal Engine for Non-commercial educational use is license free and royalty free. There is a 5% royalty on gross commercial revenues (other than some exceptions) and the first $3K is royalty free per quarter.
Please encourage students, educators and administrators to go to the link below to get licenses.
If you have specific questions about how it applies to educational institutions, you can see the EDU FAQ below.
You can also find docs to help with academic installs below.
