Adobe Creative Cloud is available at a discount for students and teachers. Choose between these two plans depending on your needs:
• The Complete plan: Gives you the latest versions of every Adobe creative tool — including Photoshop CC and Illustrator CC — plus seamless ways to share and collaborate.
• The Photography plan: Includes Photoshop CC and Lightroom for all your image editing and photo-based projects.
Both plans require an annual commitment, but you can choose to pay by the month or prepay for the full year with either plan.
Am I eligible?
To qualify for a student discount, you must be at least 13 years of age and enrolled in one of the following:
• University or college — accredited public or private university or college (including community, junior, or vocational college) that grants degrees requiring not less than the equivalent of two years of full-time study*
• Primary or secondary school — accredited public or private primary or secondary school providing full-time instruction*
• Homeschool — defined by state homeschooling regulations
How do I purchase?
The best way to purchase is directly from Adobe through our website or by calling 800-585-0774. You can also find Adobe Student and Teacher Editions through many campus bookstores and other online retailers. See the “Online stores” section.
At checkout, you’ll need to provide the name of your school and indicate whether you are a student, educator, or administrator.
What is proof of eligibility?
Use a school-issued email address: If you provide a school-issued email address during purchase you are instantly verified.
