Subscription Overview

Creative Cloud for Enterprise brings together everything needed to empower students, faculty, and staff to create and manage content across mobile, desktop, and the web – in a secure way. The Creative Cloud subscription provides the UNC-Chapel Hill community access to the full range of creative desktop apps for digital imaging, design, web, and video, plus online services that include 20GB of storage for all students, faculty, and staff with a valid Onyen. Best of all, the latest updates, new features, apps, and services are available as soon as they’re released. By installing the Adobe Creative Cloud applications you agree that you will not store any sensitive data in the Adobe cloud-based storage.

A: Yes, you can install it on up to two systems. Just be aware that if you disable cloud storage synchronization, the data files created on each system will not be automatically updated on all systems; they will only be stored locally.
A: If your status changes, simply email software@unc.edu with your new status so we can update your membership. If you went from being a student to a non-instructional faculty/staff member, you will need to have your department order Adobe CC for you to continue using it.
A: You can still get Adobe CC through your department via ConnectCarolina/ePro for $20 per year.
A: Certainly! Please email software@unc.edu with the Onyens of both the leaving and arriving staff member so we can update and create the necessary accounts. The license will be good for the remainder of the annual Adobe license term and will be automatically billed and renewed at the end of November.
A: First and foremost, make sure to back up all of your Adobe CC data files locally. Once your Onyen is deactivated, you will no longer be able to log into the Adobe CC applications with your University email address. If you would like to continue using Adobe CC after your departure, Adobe has several options available for purchase.
