Adobe Software

License Period: July 1- June 30

The newest version of Adobe’s Creative Suite is called the Creative Cloud (CC). Though the moniker “cloud” seems to indicate programs and projects will be stored in the cloud, the applications are downloaded and installed on your computer. To comply with contractual obligations, this software may only be installed on University owned equipment.

Adobe Creative Cloud includes Adobe Acrobat. For a full list of applications included with Adobe Creative Cloud, go to the Adobe website

For users who need the software infrequently, Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Creative Cloud are available at no charge to MU faculty and staff using Software Anywhere.
