How to request Adobe Creative Cloud

Faculty and Staff

Faculty and staff can apply for a Creative Cloud individual license by filling out the Creative Cloud Installation Form on myHelpdesk. While there is no fee for the license, license approval can take up to 10 business days. You will be able to use Creative Cloud immediately under Adobe's 30-day trial license until your WCM license is approved (view installer instructions). The 30-day trial installation may only work properly if you are using an open or research network computer (i.e., user has full administrative rights).  If you are on a locked computer, ITS support will assist with the installation.


Graduate and medical students can fill out this online form to request a copy. Please note students will only be able to install Adobe Creative Cloud on one computer using this license.
