Additional Information

More information about Adobe Creative Cloud can be found in Adobe's Creative Cloud Overview.

Adobe Adobe Creative Cloud is licensed for use on up to 2 computers.

Support is provided by helpx.adobe.com/support.html. The Computing Hub Help Desk only provides help with installing Adobe, and is not affiliated with the Kivuto online store at https://onthehub.sdsu.edu.

Do NOT use a personal account for Adobe CC, such as the free version. This will cause licensing issues. After you receive the confirmation email from Adobe from purchasing the student subscription, sign out of all personal Adobe CC apps and then sign back in using your SDSUid as the Enterprise ID for the new license to take affect.

The Adobe Creative Cloud subscription license is for current students, once you graduate you will no longer qualify. Your SDSUid license will expire around 90 days past the last day of semester you were last enrolled.
