Departments who want their students to have access to Adobe Creative Cloud must pay the additional cost of adding these students to the agreement. It must be paid for the current year plus next year.

The agreement includes programs for Windows and Mac.

Note that the program can only be used for academic work (teaching and research) - not for commercial work.

You must use this user account to be an Adobe Creative Cloud user to install and use installed programs included in this agreement - no license codes are used.
