    Upgrade to 5.5?

    I have an Acameic version of MC5 which I purchased in Sept. 2010. I would love to upgrade to 5.5 (or 6, of course). I've been told that Avid gives upgrades for four years for the academic version of 6. But I don't know about the policy for 5. 

    Does anybody know if I'm entitled to the 5.5 upgrade? And if so, how do I go about obtaining it?

    Thanks for your help!

    Looks like you're up for four years too!  You're eligible for MC6 right now - not sure what you'd need to do if you really need 5.5, but I'd say contact the Customer Advocate e-mail at the bottom of the following page if you run into that issue or any others.  That'll probably get you right to Marianna Montague, who's all kinds of awesome when it comes to helping folks out on here.  Anyway, here's the academic upgrade page:

    Obviously, check your computer specs against the Version Matrix to make sure you're compatible all the way across - actually, it would help to post all your system specs in your profile anyway - that'll help people figure out any problems you might post on here, as well as advise you of any upgrade pitfalls.

    CJ:

    You are entitled to free upgrades until Sept 2014. You can go direct to MC 6 or if you prefer, MC 5.5. Both are available at the download center, once your eligibility has been confirmed.
