Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference between Grammarly’s individual offerings (free and Premium) vs. Grammarly for Education?
Rather than buying each student or staff their own individual Grammarly accounts, Grammarly for Education is an institutional license that can be purchased sitewide or by volume. With Grammarly for Education, students and faculty can get all the benefits of the paid Grammarly Premium
product, along with enterprise features like single sign-on, style guide, and admin panel.
Can everyone at my institution use Grammarly?
A Grammarly for Education sitewide license grants access to all students, faculty, and administrators at your institution. All other types of licenses give access only to those for whom they are granted. See Plan Comparison for more details.
Does Grammarly for Education work with LMS software (such as Blackboard, Canvas, and Moodle)?
Will Grammarly for Education do students’ work for them?
No, Grammarly does not automatically correct or rewrite student writing. Instead, our suggestions are in support of sharpening writing skills for more effective engagement in the classroom. The writer must decide whether to accept or reject each suggestion. And Grammarly offers explanations for each change, helping the writer understand the reasoning and identify repeated errors or areas of confusion to improve over time.
What databases does Grammarly’s plagiarism detector check against?
The plagiarism detector scans for potential sources for sentences and passages across more than 16 billion web pages as well as articles from ProQuest™’s proprietary databases. Grammarly’s plagiarism detector works as you write to help students and researchers identify unoriginal text before submitting work, so research can be cited appropriately. Grammarly does not check your text against internal database or works previously submitted by other users or yourself.
How much does a Grammarly for Education license cost?
Grammarly for Education pricing is based on subscription level and institution or group size. For maximum flexibility, we offer two levels of Grammarly for Education accounts: A volume-based group subscription that uses per-seat pricing and a site-wide license option that offers the best value per seat and more writing and administrative features.
