Unless Adobe has changed its policy in the last year or so,
educational versions of its products aren't tracked separately.
Once you have a license of any sort, Adobe seems to upgrade

I assume that Adobe does this because many of its customers are
long-term. The educational discounts draw people in, and then the
company makes money off them on each upgrade.
