Obtain an Adobe Creative Cloud Subscription

All Students MUST have regular access to software on the Adobe Creative Cloud.

A discounted subscription to Adobe CC is available through Information Technology Services.Student licenses are available for $62 per year. Your Adobe access is managed using university credentials and cannot be applied to a personally-owned Adobe ID. 


After you receive access, you need to download Adobe Photoshop,Illustrator, and Premiere Rush to your computer. Adobe CC includes additional software that you are free to download and explore on your own, but we will use mainly Photoshop, Illustrator, and Premiere Rush in this course.

If you need support, you can

  • call the Blackboard Help Desk at 479-575-6804
  • email
  • or click on the Tech Support Chat under the top Support tab in Blackboard.

NOTE:  if you are an on-campus student with a limited budget, some publicly available computers provide open access to Adobe Creative Cloud. Check with the IT staff for locations.

You should open Photoshop, Illustrator, and Rush on your computer to be sure you have downloaded the software successfully so you will be ready to begin the course.
