How to get Adobe CC

adobe-cc-creative-cloud_icon

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 help@concordia.ca.

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.

How to buy software

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.

Class/laboratories onsite recording support

CTL and IITS are offering the following services via this request form.
  • Audio-video recording equipment on local computers and laptops in designated classrooms on campus.
  • Mobile filming kit on both campuses to help faculty record lab components that cannot be moved off-site.
  • Studios equipped with Lightboards, recording equipment and dedicated technicians on both campuses. More info on Lightboard Studios.

Changing your MyConcordia.ca password

If you decide to change your password that is associated with your netname, please be aware of the following.

  1. It takes about an hour for systems at Concordia to sync with each other. So change it and wait about an hour before attempting to login.
  2. If you don’t change it at the same time on all your devices, then your account may get locked. This happens because after about five attempts to login with the wrong password, the system will lock your account for about 15 minutes. So if you forgot that your old phone that you gave your son or daughter as an example, still has your Concordia email setup, that old phone will be trying to login with the wrong password and will lock up your account. At that point the only solution is to find the device and change or delete that account.
