Can students use Adobe Creative Cloud products on their own computer?

How can students purchase their own Adobe software subscription?


A Named User License (NUL) is required if a student wants to use subscription-based Adobe applications on their personal computer. However, students are not eligible to receive a NUL for Adobe Creative Cloud through the university under WSU's current licensing agreement with Adobe. They can use WSU-owned computers connected to the WSU Network (on-campus or via the Global Protect VPN) that have a Shared Device License (SDL) version of the Adobe products installed. Students and staff cannot install the SDL software on their own computer. 

Students can purchase a personal Adobe Named User License at a discounted price: 

  1. Navigate to Adobe for Education. 
  2. Click Students & Teachers on the top menu.
  3. Click Buy Now.
  4. Select the desired billing option (monthly or yearly). 
  5. Enter email address. It is highly recommended to use a personal email address, and not a WSU email address, for the Adobe ID when purchasing a personal Adobe subscription. 
  6. Continue to payment method.
