Adobe Licenses

Cloud Licensing

What is Adobe Creative Cloud?

Creative Cloud brings together in one place everything you need to create your greatest work. It gives you the very latest versions of the tools and services you love, coupled with more efficient ways to collaborate with your peers and share your work with the creative community. Creative Cloud simplifies the creative process from start to finish. For more information, see the Creative Cloud FAQ.

We are now offering Adobe Creative Cloud for $285 per year.

We are also offering the following single titles for $150 a year:

  • AfterEffects
  • Audition
  • Dreamweaver
  • Flash Pro
  • Illustrator
  • InCopy
  • InDesign
  • Muse
  • Photoshop
  • Premiere Pro

These licenses must be renewed, or they stop working.  When a user leaves UMB, they stop working.

These licenses are assigned to users, by email address, and allow each user two (2) installations – which can be on personally-owned or UMB-owned hardware.

The annual term expires on 11/23, so the software is pro-rated, and will be reduced throughout the license term.

Adobe Cloud is available to faculty, staff, and students for installation on personally-owned or University-owned computers.

Perpetual Licensing

What does "perpetual" mean?

Adobe has traditionally offered individual products and suite editions with a perpetual license, which allows customers to use their products for an indefinite period of time. The perpetual license model is different from the new Creative Cloud membership licensing model, where customers pay a fee to use their products on a month-to-month or annual basis.

Adobe Perpetual licenses are only available for installation on University-owned computers.
