Licensing and Restrictions

The full Adobe Creative Suite is only available to university faculty/staff at this time for use on university-owned machines and lab usage. At this time, we do not have the Creative Cloud Storage feature and we are only authorized to use the Creative Cloud Apps. Students may access the software through a university-owned lab machine only and will not be able to download the software on their personal devices unless they purchase the discounted version on their own. Keep in mind that we are required to maintain a 60/40 ratio of Adobe Acrobat to Creative Suite downloads. Meaning, for every 4 machines that has CS downloaded, 6 more require acrobat to be installed.
