  • On Student Teams Editors will need to confirm their student status.

Note: If you're adding new Editors to a Team, your monthly Billing will increase. If you are replacing an Editor and your total number of Editors won't change, you won't incur any extra costs. Learn more about what to expect in our View your Plan Details and Invoices article.
