Adobe Creative Cloud

As you may know, Penn State IT is embarking on a new initiative to help promote Digital Fluency among students. The first part of this initiative is providing Adobe Creative Cloud at no cost to all faculty and students starting Sept. 18. Simply visit and follow the instructions to download the suite.

While Adobe CC is available to faculty and students at no cost, staff still have the opportunity to gain access to these products. The Adobe contract is multi-year, with the first year centrally covered, however the cost mode for year’s 2 and 3 is currently undetermined. While the product is free for staff use now, there is a possibility that a cost to continue to use the software in years 2 and 3 will be passed on to Liberal Arts. Therefore, the current process for requesting Adobe software is still in place. Any staff member desiring to use Adobe software must have approval from their unit.
