How much does each edition within Google Workspace for Education cost?
Google Workspace for Education Fundamentals is available at no cost for all qualifying institutions. Education Standard, the Teaching and Learning Upgrade, and Education Plus are paid editions.

All editions provide schools with 100 TB of storage shared across the institution. Additional storage is provided with the Teaching and Learning Upgrade and Education Plus editions based on the number of licences purchased. Please review our comparison chart for more details or visit our Help Centre.
Can I have more than one edition at the same time?
It depends and varies based on the intended combination of editions.
You must have an Education Fundamentals edition to upgrade to any of the other editions (Education Standard, the Teaching and Learning Upgrade or Education Plus).
You cannot have Education Plus in combination with Education Standard or the Teaching and Learning Upgrade – only Education Fundamentals.
You can have a combination of Education Standard and the Teaching and Learning Upgrade at the same time. Although we believe that the maximum value of those combined editions can be realised in Education Plus, we wanted to be as flexible as possible to school community needs.
Are discounts available and/or are there incentives for longer-term commitments?
Yes, Google offers automatic discounts for customers who contractually commit to a multi-year purchase (two years or more) of Google Workspace for Education Plus. To learn more, please connect with your Google Workspace for Education partner reseller and/or Google for Education representative.

Customers can re-evaluate continuing with their subscription or downgrade at the end of their subscription term.

All paid Google Workspace for Education editions are available as annual subscriptions, and pricing is locked for the duration of the subscription term.
