Yes there does seem to be.  I had the 3.00 version for students but I
had some problems with it (it did not print correctly and some options
were not working correctly).  I emailed the student support section at
the Wolfram site (telling them about all the problems I had) and a
technician arranged for me to receive a free upgrade to (it was
sent UPS 2nd day delivery).  So try emailing the student support group.
I would not speak with the people at sales (or whatever they call it
because they told me originally that I could not get an upgrade).

So far, version for students seems to be much faster (and all
the old bugs that I saw in 3.00 are gone it seems).  I once plotted a
complicated contour plot with 3.0.0 and it took it about 45-60 minutes.
When I did the same thing (the same plot) with it took it only
about 10-15 mintues.  Don't ask me why.  Supposedly everything in the
program is now better optimized for Win95 and runs much faster.  I
would reccommend getting the upgrade if you can.
