New Licensing for Adobe Creative Cloud
VCU recently signed an ETLA (Enterprise Term Licensing Agreement) for Adobe Creative Cloud. This license provides access to a full range of creative applications for digital imaging, design, web, and video. With this new ETLA, VCU negotiated licensing at a significantly reduced the cost for VCU faculty, staff and students.
Academic Technologies staff are currently working with different departments and schools to transition existing VIP licenses to the VCU Adobe ETLA Portal. Once complete, VCU faculty and staff licenses will be available for purchase for Adobe Creative Cloud ($190/year) and/or Adobe Acrobat DC ($60/year). Licenses may be requested anytime throughout the contract year by submitting an IT Support Center ticket after the initial transition period of June – July 2019.
Student licenses will be available for purchase once all provisioning processes are in place, sometime before the Fall 2019 semester. Students have access to Spark Premium at no cost, and all students have the option to purchase a license for Creative Cloud for $60 per year, or $30 for 6 months. Students who are interested may complete this form to have their name added to a list to be notified when Creative Cloud becomes available for purchase.
