Adobe Creative Cloud

Adobe Creative Cloud is the only option for educational licensing for previously called Creative Suite products. While previous licenses of CS6 products (or earlier) on campus are perpetual and will not expire, we are no longer able to purchase these versions but must purchase Adobe Creative Cloud (Adobe CC).

HDMZ computing lab

The Humanities Digital Media Zone (HDMZ) is a media-production, computing, and language-resource facility located on the first floor of the Walker Arts and Humanities Center (with entries on both the north and south hallways). The HDMZ features Apple iMacs and Windows computers with an assortment of digital media software, including the full Adobe Creative Suite.

Departmental purchasing

Named user license

This is a yearly subscription license. Michigan Tech’s “anniversary date” is December 3. Purchases made throughout the year fall under a prorated pricing schedule and expire at the next anniversary. Licenses must be renewed annually on the anniversary date or be removed from the machine.

Unlike previous Adobe installers that used a single license key, orders must now be processed through both our reseller and Adobe before the software can be installed.
