For those who already purchased a subscription at Adobe.com, 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.
