Questions On 'Epic's New UE4 Education Program?
I hope that this question makes sense.
Basically, i have seen the new page about how 'epic' now offer a unreal engine 4 for academic use for schools and students. I wanted to know if it was possible for students to get unreal engine 4 (under similar agreements of the new education option) without the need for a school to register the students?
If none of this is possible that is fine, i was just curious if it was. I looked at the FAQ and the education page and did not see that there was anyway for a student to signup on their own.
At a second look, is it possible for me to get permission from the school to enter the schools name, and then for me to put my contact information in the boxes and enter student licenses as only 1? Or is it really only meant to be used by the school teachers? I also intend to use the engine to create a commercial project, from what i am reading am i correct in thinking that i don't have to pay the 19$ per month, however i will have to pay the 5% royalties to 'Epic' upon release, and i want to make sure that when i do release, I will be paying and not the school, as long as i put my details in the Contact information boxes.
I currently own unreal engine and I really like the current prices and am enjoying using the engine. Sorry if this was covered in the FAQ. Thank you in advance for any responses.

The form on this page (https://www.unrealengine.com/education) is necessary to be submitted by school faculty. As a student, you will need to speak with the faculty of your school and get them to submit the form.
If your school does provide you with a free student license, and you sell a game which earns more than $3,000 a quarter, then you (or the organization which earns the revenue) do owe Epic 5% of sales, but you do not need to subscribe for $19 per month so long as you are using the free student license.
I hope this answers your questions.
