Adobe Creative Cloud is a set of applications and services released by Adobe for graphic design, video editing, photo editing, web design, and mobile app development. The Creative Cloud (CC) applications are available campus wide and for home use.

Starting with the 2019 release of all Adobe applications, Adobe will be changing their licensing model from device based to user based. This change is effective across all Adobe applications, including areas that are multi-user such as public and private labs.

Adobe only allows for 2 simultaneous licenses of any given product at the same time. If users exceed this license count, the following prompt will display when attempting to sign into an Adobe product:


Users may then select which machine to sign-out of by selecting 'Sign Out' from directly in the message window. After signing out from a device, users are automatically signed into the current machine.
