You can import .mod files into Student version.
The only limitation is the number of nodes it will handle.
Create a new PSPICE library, import the .mod file, go to options and
tell it to create a symbol upon saving. Save.
Click add part, add your new library et voila, the pinouts should be
listed in the .mod
