No schoolwide upgrade to Adobe Creative Cloud planned

Question

I’m a staff member and a user of the Adobe suite of applications — Acrobat Pro, Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere and InDesign.

The Adobe products available to us through OIT are the CS6 versions, the last versions before Adobe went to a subscription-based licensing system. Those versions are getting a bit long in the tooth and are missing features that the current versions have.

Is there any plan by OIT/UAF to migrate to the Creative Cloud versions? Or are other options being explored?

Response

The school won’t upgrade Adobe at this time because of how Adobe changed its licensing. If you want the Creative Cloud, your department would have to purchase it. If you have any specific questions, please contact the service desk in person. For service desk locations and hours, click here.
