Software - Adobe Creative Cloud License Request

Tags Adobe AdobeCC


Adobe Creative Cloud applications and services gives subscribers access to a collection of tools used for graphic design, video editing, web development, photography, along with a set of mobile applications and also some optional cloud services.  Creative Cloud applications are not available for individual purchase.

Adobe CC Remote Access for Students

OSU has been granted a limited number of student licenses for Adobe CC - these licenses are available to certain classes that utilize Adobe CC for course work (NMC, Graphic Design, Art, etc).

Unfortunately, our CC license does not allow Adobe CC apps to be added to Citrix Remote Apps. If you need to access Adobe CC apps and are not in a class that has CC access for the term, you will need to purchase a CC license directly from Adobe. The student discount link can be found here.

Adobe Creative Cloud applications and services licensing is available in two options:
  • Named user license - Authenticated with a user's onid credentials.  Installation is allowed on up to two devices.  One device may be personally owned (staff and faculty devices only)
  • Shared device license - A license for a device shared by individuals within a college unit or department.  The applications may be used by all individuals granted access to the device.  Each device must have a separately purchased license. 

There is also an Acrobat Named User license available to staff/faculty at no charge. This can be requested with this form.
