NO, you do NOT lose any capabilities with the Student Version, whether
the ordinary license or a year-long or semester-long license!
You do gain the minor annoyance of having, at the bottom of each printed
page, the footnote "Printed by Mathematica for Students" displayed. And
the only kind of direct technical support provided is for installation
