How to get Adobe CC

adobe-cc-creative-cloud_icon

Both staff and students can use the procedure below to access Adobe software.

Concordia has secured a limited amount of Adobe CC licenses for students that will be active until Summer 2021 as long as you remain an active student enrolled in the class listed below. The license does not grant access to most web only applications and cloud services, such as the cloud version of Lightroom.

Students, step 1 is to activate your live.concordia.ca email address that Concordia gives you for free! Otherwise nothing below will work for you.

If you have trouble with anything below, please email help@concordia.ca with as many details and screenshots as possible and someone will get back to you.

If you are a student and have a class that requires Adobe CC, you will find it listed at the bottom of this page and you should already have access, so try and login using the instructions below.

Students will need to login with their netname@live.concordia.ca email account. You can activate it by following the instructions here: https://www.concordia.ca/it/services/office-365-education.html

Students who’s class is not listed can still fill out the form referenced below, but you will get the license only if we have some left. If you were not automatically eligible, once you fill in the form, try to login after two or three business days to see if you have access. You will probably not be contacted unless you are not eligible.

To reiterate, the students that need to fill out this form are those who’s class is not listed at the bottom of this page.

If you are faculty and need to get your class on the list, you have to submit the request to CDA by filling out this form. You’ll need to login with your Office 365 account to fill out the form. We will then add all the students from your class to the master list we provide IITS for account creation.
