Adobe Creative Cloud Price Reduced Even More

Last Updated: 11/05/2019

As part of the Financial Futures initiative, our campus recently negotiated an enterprise license that lowered the price for the Adobe Creative Cloud (CC) suite of software and now that price has been lowered even further! The price for Adobe CC has dropped to $65 for the remainder of this fiscal year (until June 30, 2020) for faculty, staff, and students. Additionally, Acrobat Pro is free for use on any university-owned computer at CU Boulder.

Through the full suite of Adobe CC products, students, faculty, and staff members have access to a host of creative tools for digital imaging, design, web, and video, as well as online services including free storage for files. Adobe apps are also available on computers in many of CU Boulder’s computing labs

For those who already purchased a subscription at, Adobe will allow subscription cancellations for no fee or penalty. Before you cancel your subscription with Adobe, we suggest purchasing a new license through the university to assure no gap in access to the software. After purchasing through the university, contact Adobe support and mention that you are a student or employee at the University of Colorado Boulder, and that you are provided Adobe Creative Cloud by the university.
