Can I have more than one edition at the same time?

It depends and varies based on the intended combination of editions.

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 the maximum value of those combined editions can be realized in Education Plus, we wanted to be as flexible as possible to school community needs.

Can I upgrade/downgrade between the editions?

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

Customers who purchase the Teaching and Learning Upgrade can add Education Standard at any time (and vice versa) as well as upgrade to Education Plus.

Customers can reevaluate continuing with their subscription or downgrade at the end of their subscription term.

What is the duration of a paid Google Workspace for Education subscription?
