Adobe Software Discounts for Students and Employees
Employees and currently enrolled Goshen College students can purchase an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription to use on their personal computers. Alumni and retirees are not eligible.
What is Adobe Creative Cloud?
Creative Cloud brings together everything you need to create your greatest work. A membership subscription gives you access to the very latest versions of all the Adobe professional creative desktop applications like Photoshop, Illustrator, and more — plus new features and upgrades as soon as they're available. Cloud storage and file syncing capabilities allow you to reliably access your files wherever you are, even on your mobile device, and you can share concepts with clients or colleagues more easily than ever. Cloud-based services let you build and publish websites, mobile apps, iPad publications, and content for any medium or device. With Creative Cloud, your entire creative world gets its own central dashboard to keep your ideas, files, fonts, settings, notifications, desktop applications, and team members in sync.
How Creative Cloud Works
Creative Cloud gives you desktop applications that you install on your computer. An Internet connection is required the first time you install and license your desktop apps, but you can use the apps in offline mode with a valid software license. The desktop apps will attempt to validate your software licenses every 30 days. Annual members can use the apps for up to 99 days in offline mode. Month-to-month members can use the software for up to 30 days in offline mode. As a Creative Cloud member, you have flexibility on when you install a new release to take advantage of new product features, if you choose to do so. If you currently own a perpetual license for Creative Suite, your existing Creative Suite installation will not be affected by installing the new Creative Cloud applications. For example, you can install and use both Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop Creative Cloud on the same computer.
