  1. You are a student actively enrolled in a post-secondary institution;
  2. You will be using the software as part of your study curriculum; and,
  3. You will not be paid for this work.

What’s the difference between the Free and Plus options?

The Student Free option gives eligible students no-charge access to DistillerSR for a semester (maximum four months) for their course work. For $15/month, the Student Plus option is for students who want additional flexibility to work on multiple projects, to collaborate on projects, and have access to email support in addition to self-serve support options.

All DistillerSR Student Program subscriptions provide access to the same DistillerSR software used by national institutions, international regulatory bodies, leading universities, and top pharmaceutical and medical device companies.

What happens when my Student Free subscription expires?

You always have the option to convert to our Student Plus plan at $15/month. The Student Plus plan offers additional benefits such as the ability to collaborate on projects with other student users and access to email support.

If I upgrade from the Student Free to the Student Plus, will I lose any of my data?

No! You will have access to all of the data you were working with when you had the Student Free subscription, you will simply be able to access the features available to the Student Plus program.

Can my supervisor/faculty member work on my project(s)?

The Student Plus plan allows you to collaborate with other Student Plus users. Faculty members are not eligible to collaborate on projects with Student Plus users, however, we have special pricing for Academic groups that include student and faculty users. Please contact us to discuss your needs.

I don’t know how to start my project. Can you help?
DistillerSR includes a comprehensive online user guide that walks you through the basics of setting up your first project. You can also use one of the included project templates to get up and running quickly.

Can I upgrade to a non-student plan in the future? Will I still have access to my data?
