Creative Cloud

Adobe Creative Cloud gives you access to the entire collection of creative apps and up to 100GB of Adobe Cloud storage.

A Named User license can be purchased for Institutional use via a department chargeback. Please follow the instructions here to purchase a license (https://stockton.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bsGYU8Y3toipTs9). If you have any questions, please give our Help Desk a call.

Adobe Creative Cloud can be installed on as many computers as you wish, but only two of them can be activated at any given time. If you attempt to activate a third computer, you will receive a notification and an opportunity to deactivate one of the other instances.
