This is a school environment and will have several profiles.
OK.
Here is how to run AutoCAD using another user account (profile) without logging into it:
1. Completely exit AutoCAD
2. After that, locate the AutoCAD icon
3. Press and hold down the Shift key, and while still holding, right-click the AutoCAD icon
4. You will see several new menus - select "Run as different user"
5. Select a user name from the list or type its name and password, and click OK to run it
6. AutoCAD will then be started under another user account (profile)
This method works for any other installed program.

Doesn't work. Still same problem.

Students need to login under their own account and be able to run AutoCad
What happens when they login and start AutoCAD?

Please completely exit AutoCAD if it is trying to start.
After that, rename the "Autodesk" folder found in
C:\Users\Adminstrator\AppData\Local
to something else, for example to "Autodesk-old"
That will make AutoCAD load default settings so start it and check if it will work.

I'm uninstalling and reinstalling AutoCAD back in a few.
OK.

One of the other techs at our school figured it out. Was all due to adding additional rights.
OK, good.
I am glad the problem has been solved.

Will I be charged?
You won't be charged since you say another person solved the problem, unless you require any other assistance.

No not today, but I will use Just Answer again in the future. I appreciate your time it has taken 5 other techs and about 20-30 hours to figure it out. AutoCAD needs to make there software a little easier to use in the schools. But even at that things that worked in other schools did not work here. Thanks again for your time.
AutoCAD is not a simple software when it comes to configuring. Hopefully, it will work fine now when the permissions have been set.
For any other issue, let me know. I will do my best to help you.
