Adobe Creative Cloud: About Adobe Creative Cloud

Austin Community College is the first community college in the nation designated an Adobe Creative Campus. This guide gives general information about creative tools available to the ACC community of learners.

What is an Adobe Creative Cloud?

Austin Community College is an Adobe Creative Campus.


Adobe Creative Cloud is available to ACC faculty, staff, and students at no-to-minimal cost. This suite of products gives users unlimited access to industry-leading creation tools for graphic design, video editing, and web development such as Photoshop, Illustrator, XD, Premiere Pro, Spark and more - with the latest updates, new features, apps, and services as soon as they are released.


ACC Creative Cloud subscriptions include desktop apps, web apps & services, and mobile apps. You may install Adobe Creative Cloud on multiple computers regardless of the operating system (PC or Mac); however, activation is limited to 2 computers at a time per individual membership, and you may not use the software on these computers simultaneously.


Adobe mobile apps are available separately from desktop apps. Mobile app system requirements may be found on mobile product pages. See Mobile Apps and visit the product page for more information.




  • Semester-based licenses are available to students in the Arts, Digital Media & Communications area of study for $10 per semester.
  • All other currently enrolled ACC students can purchase a semester-based license for $50 per semester.


Faculty and staff:

  • Fulltime faculty and staff licenses are available at no cost
  • Employee licenses re-authenticate once per year-so if a faculty gets the license in the fall and don't teach again until the following fall, the software will attempt to "renew" the next fall


If you leave the college:


  • The license is semester-based.
  • Once the semester is over, students must start a new subscription with Adobe to continue using the software.
