How can I access Adobe Creative Cloud as a student?

While the on-campus computer labs are unavailable, UIC students who need to use Adobe Creative Cloud applications for their studies are able to request one-year access to an Adobe Creative Cloud Enterprise ID.

An Adobe Creative Cloud Enterprise ID will allow you to sign in to the Adobe Creative Cloud apps in order to collaborate on projects via shared libraries. It will also allow you to download, install, and use the Adobe Creative Cloud applications which are part of the Adobe Campus agreement on your personal computer, or to use the applications available in the Virtual Computer Lab.

Once you have ordered this free WebStore offer, your Adobe Enterprise ID will be activated within one business day or sooner.
