Adobe is allowing individual use of Creative Cloud through May 31st by students and faculty at institutions where Shared Device (Lab) Licensing was in use

Adobe has provided the following introductory message, which we've tailored with some Drew-specific information.

Dear Students & Faculty,

 As a result of campus closure, student access to Adobe Creative Cloud in labs and classrooms is not available. Adobe has provided temporary at-home access for impacted students and faculty, so that they can continue their work remotely. Please follow the instructions below to enable access to Creative Cloud Desktop Apps on your personal device.

  1. Visit and use the Drew email address you provided to the instructor for your course. If you've already set up an Adobe ID using that email address, enter the password. If you have not, you will need to create one and pick a password when prompted

  2. If prompted, select Company or School Account and then enter your password. 

  3. From the Creative Cloud website, browse for and download your desired app. Click Apps on the top of the page to view all apps.

For more information on how to download or install apps, see Download and Install Creative Cloud apps.


For Higher Education students to continue developing skills, Adobe offers free “Daily Creative Challenges”. These are guided projects where participants receive creative prompts and connect with pros, mentors, and other students for feedback and support. Click on the app name to learn more: PhotoshopXD and Illustrator. Also, for inspiration and over-the-shoulder learning, watch pros share their creative process on Adobe Live daily at


For faculty seeking to engage students during campus closures, Adobe has curated resources to help them discover inspiring projects, best practices, and new ideas so they can continue to drive valuable learning in virtual environments.
