Does the Educational license apply to high schools?
I am competing in a high school competition and would love to use UE4 paired up with our Oculus Rift. I looked through all the educational usage stuff on the UE4 website, but it seems like it all applies to colleges and universities. This seems kind of silly to me, high schools are schools too! UE is such a powerful tool, and being a poor high school kid, I don't really have the money to pay for 6 months of subscription while the contest is going on. I couldn't find an email so I figured I'd ask here, not entirely sure if it's the right place but oh well. Thanks for reading I guess, Lazer

While our offer for academic institutes to receive UE4 applies to colleges and universities, you are still able to take advantage of UE4 while you do not have an active subscription.
If cost is a concern, then I would suggest getting a subscription for just one month and then cancelling. You will only have to pay the $19 once, but you will be able to keep and use UE4 forever. You can even publish your games without re-subscribing (the 5% royalty still applies to sold products though). There is no need to pay every month unless you want updates and new content as it comes out.
Let me know if you have any questions.
