Find out about everything Creative Cloud has to offer schools and universities.
  1. What applications and services are available in Creative Cloud for education customers?

    Applications and services vary depending on your Creative Cloud licensing option. See the Education licensing overview for a comparison of applications and services.

  2. What's the difference between a complete and single-app membership?

    A Creative Cloud for education complete plan includes all the Creative Cloud apps. A single-app plan gives users access to one app, such as Photoshop CC or Illustrator CC. Single-app customers on a named-user license will also have access to 20GB of storage and services such as the ability to sync, share, and collaborate with colleagues and the ability to create a customized online portfolio with Behance ProSite.

  3. What is the best licensing option for a primary or secondary school or school district?

    The Adobe Education Enterprise Agreement (EEA) provides primary and secondary schools with an easy-to-manage licensing program that gives students and teachers access to Creative Cloud apps. Optional bundles for Adobe Captivate, Presenter, Photoshop Elements, and Premiere Elements are also available.The EEA is a buying program for primary and secondary schools.

    This one- or two-year term-based licensing program allows for predictable budgeting under a single agreement. Based on estimated street pricing, most primary and secondary schools that need approximately 15 or more computers in a lab or classroom environment will find that an EEA agreement is a lower-cost option than a Creative Cloud for education plan, depending on the institution's FTE (full-time equivalent) staff/teacher count.

  4. Is Creative Cloud for education appropriate for institution-wide deployment?

    If you're looking for an institution-wide deployment that's customized to fit your requirements, you can purchase Creative Cloud for enterprise through an Enterprise Term License Agreement (ETLA). Primary and secondary schools and legal entities may also purchase Creative Cloud apps through an Education Enterprise Agreement (EEA).

  5. Can nonprofit customers purchase Creative Cloud through education licensing?

    Yes, nonprofit customers are eligible to purchase both Creative Cloud for education named-user and device licenses, and may also be eligible under the ETLA. Contact your Adobe sales representative for more details. Note that individual Creative Cloud memberships do not qualify for nonprofit pricing.
