- A public or private K-12, vocational school, correspondence school, religious education school, junior college, college, university, or scientific or technical school that is accredited by an accrediting agency nationally recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education or, in the case of public K-12 institutions, recognized or approved by the Department of Education of the State in which it is located.

Full- and part-time enrolled students of a higher-educational institution may purchase individual subscriptions.
Global educational institutions
Red Hat is committed to providing educational resources worldwide. The program defined in this document includes qualification criteria based on US specifications. International qualification will be based on similar criteria, however, regional requirements will be incorporated when evaluating qualification for the individual programs.

Non-Academic entities which provide services, such as outsourcing providers, to qualified educational institutions but do not transfer ownership of both the systems and the Enterprise Linux subscriptions are not qualified to purchase under this program.
Research laboratories and healthcare providers
Hospitals, Healthcare Systems and Research Laboratories (including independent Research Laboratories, Research Laboratories funded from outside any affiliated University or Research Laboratories funded and/or affiliated with the Department of Defense or the Department of Energy) are NOT eligible for Red Hat's educational programs unless they are wholly owned and operated by a qualified Educational Institution as defined above.

A qualified educational institution has complete financial responsibility for the entity in question;
The entity is solely governed by the same Board of Regents as a qualified educational institution;
A qualified educational institution has the sole authority to hire and fire all employees of the entity; and
A qualified educational institution has sole and final approval over policies and procedures of the entity.
