Faculty of Fine Arts staff and students can use the instructions below to access Adobe software. This page also contains links to a form for teachers to request licenses for their entire class. Don’t worry we just need your class number, not all your student names. If a teacher or staff needs their own license, they have to request a staff license by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Concordia has secured a limited amount of Adobe CC licenses for students that will be active as long as you remain an active student enrolled in a class listed below. The license does not grant access to most web only applications and cloud services, such as the cloud version of Lightroom.
New procedures will come from the Dean’s office soon, but for now we are being asked to use the web requisition (WebReq) system to order any software regardless of the cost.
If you are not familiar with the WebReq process, you can read the instructions from this PDF file.
**Note that if you just need to purchase a plugin or things like textures that don’t have an executable/installer, you can order it yourself without going through this process. Just remember to get permission from the budget office to make sure you’ll be reimbursed.
The university has switched to SentinelOne for anti-virus protection on all university owned assets. It is not available for personal computers, but we can recommend you install the home version of Sophos which is free since the trial version of Sophos does not expire.
This page has a good list of apps that are optimized for Apple’s new M1 chip computers.
If you decide to change your password that is associated with your netname, please be aware of the following.
We are using Cinema’s sound effects library which is available during the closure to all Fine Arts students.
