WVU’s new one-year contract with Adobe ensures that Creative Cloud products are accessible to faculty and staff at no cost for the current academic year. However, licensing changes are required when all WVU-owned machines are updated with the 2019 version. After Oct. 14, you must request access, then log into a new Creative Cloud Desktop Application to install the product(s) you need. Adobe products will NOT be installed on WVU-owned machines by default.
No one is losing access. All 19 Creative Cloud products will be available through Aug. 13, 2020. The only change is in how you access those products. More details will be provided before Oct. 14, when IT staff remove all 2018 Adobe products from WVU-owned devices. With the new Creative Cloud Desktop App, you will be able to install the new software on any two devices you choose.
