Adobe Creative Cloud is a design suite used for print, web and video creations. Adobe Creative Cloud is used to create multimedia projects including video, audio, web graphics, documents and images. With a University Enterprise Adobe ID, UA faculty, staff and graduate student assistants can utilize Adobe Creative Cloud software listed below at no cost!
Adobe has changed how it licenses its software. All students, faculty and staff are now required to login to Adobe on lab machines with an Adobe ID. Faculty and staff will login with an Enterprise Adobe ID. Follow the steps below under “How to Obtain Adobe” to establish an Enterprise Adobe ID. Students must create a free Adobe ID on the Adobe website, or they can login with an existing Adobe ID.
An Adobe Enterprise ID includes 20GB of cloud storage; however, OIT recommends Box unlimited cloud storage.
Enterprise ID licenses allow for two active installations on two different devices. A personally owned device may be selected as one of the devices for work-at-home purposes.
This software is not available for download to most students; it is only available to students classified as a graduate assistant employed by UA. Students may use Creative Cloud in computer labs/classrooms that have the software installed. Please note that an Adobe ID is required for students to access the software on lab machines. Students can create an Adobe ID on the Adobe website, or they can login with an existing Adobe ID.
First, you will need to register for an Adobe Enterprise Account, then you can download the CC software.
What is my UA Enterprise email address?

You may have previously created an Adobe ID with your @ua.edu email address. You will need to create a new Adobe Enterprise Account in order to use the version provided to faculty and staff at no cost. Click the button above and follow the steps to get started.
Why am I getting a message that my username is not valid?
Enter your Enterprise email address, which is your myBama account name @ ua.edu. The application will not recognize any other UA email address.
Why do students have to have an Adobe ID to use Adobe in computer labs?
UA has a shared device license to provide Adobe software to students in computer labs. An Adobe ID is required to access and use Adobe software. Students can quickly create an Adobe ID on the Adobe website, or they can login with an existing Adobe ID.
Lab Administrators may install Adobe on shared machines in a lab or student environment. To be granted access to this procedure, please contact the IT Service Desk.
There is no cost for UA faculty or staff.
Enterprise ID licenses allow for two active installations on two different devices. A personally owned device may be selected as one of the devices for work-at-home purposes. Please visit our Adobe ELTA page to see full licensing information.
The Enterprise ID is only valid while you are employed at UA. If you are no longer a faculty or staff member at UA, your account will not be active.
