How to get Adobe CC
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 email@example.com.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org with as many details and screenshots as possible and someone will get back to you.
Students will need to login with their email@example.com 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.
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.
