ITS Shares Adobe Pro and Creative Cloud Licensing Update


Saint Louis University has signed an agreement with Adobe to provide faculty and staff members access to Adobe Acrobat Pro on University-managed devices.  Adobe Acrobat Pro allows individuals to edit, create, print, and manage pdf files. 

Beginning Monday, July 3, if users already have a licensed version of Adobe Acrobat Pro, they should simply sign out of the current account, and sign back in with their SLU email address. Users may be prompted to choose "Company or School Account,” if they already use your SLU email address for their license. 

If users are currently using only Adobe Acrobat Reader, Information Technology Services will automatically upgrade your version of Adobe Acrobat Reader to the Adobe Acrobat Pro starting on Wednesday, July 5.

Additionally, existing licenses for other Adobe products that are part of the Creative Cloud suite (such as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign etc.) are covered in this new agreement.  Creative Cloud is a suite of applications used for graphic design, video editing, web development, and photography. Faculty and staff who already have departmental purchased Creative Cloud licenses need to complete this form by Sept. 30 to take advantage of this program. 

In October, Information Technology Services will announce a process for requesting any additional available licenses. This centralized licensing model allows the University to provide the latest versions of the products all covered under a single agreement, as well as to expand access to Adobe Acrobat Pro to all SLU staff and faculty. 

Going forward, this means faculty and staff may contact ITS directly (rather than purchasing licenses on their own) to discuss their Adobe needs.
