Attaching MIT's Adobe License to Your Adobe ID

If you have a prior version of Adobe CS Suite installed, IS&T recommends that users follow Adobe’s Adobe Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool instructions prior to attempting installation of this Adobe Creative Cloud application.

The Adobe Creative Cloud suite of applications is available to MIT Faculty and Staff for use on MIT owned machines to do MIT business ONLY. A user's license can be installed on up to 3 MIT owned machines, but ONLY actively logged in on 2 MIT owned machines.

Installation requires an account with Administrator Privileges.

  1. Complete the following through IS&T’s Adobe Creative Cloud page. (MIT Certificate required)
    1. Request a license for Adobe Creative Cloud from our form. (Currently disabled as of May 2017 when all licenses were distributed)
      • Your Adobe ID request MUST be associated with your email ONLY
    2. Download the Adobe Creative Cloud Installer.
  2. You will be emailed a confirmation from Adobe that your newly created ID is now associated with the MIT Adobe CC License.
  3. Go to your Creative Cloud App.
  4. Sign in to the Creative Cloud App.
    • Adobe software should now list as Open or Install not Try in the Creative Cloud app.
