Adobe CC eligibility is based on your primary role at the University of Arizona which is why faculty is unable to request access via the student portal. We recommend that faculty requests access as a staff member to get Adobe Creative Cloud up and running. The content of the license would be the same both as a student and as a staff member, a Staff Adobe CC License would not have to be renewed every academic year different from the student License.

The access to Adobe Creative Cloud stops once you no longer an enrolled Student/Faculty member at the University of Arizona.

The Creative Cloud website is available in English, Chinese Traditional, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish. Individual desktop apps and services may not be available in all these languages.
