Can I be an NVIDIA Registered Developer?

Hello Everyone,
I want to learn more about coidng and machine learning and want to use Cuda and cuDNN. However I am a freshmen in my uni and starting my first semester and it is in chemical engineering. Can I still use these tools without being associated with any organization.
I have found a similar thread, but the link doesnt work anymore:

Thank you for your assistance!
