Installing Adobe Creative Cloud for Student Personal Use

Emerson IT is excited to announce that Adobe Creative Cloud is available as a FREE download to all current Emerson full-time students on your personal devices!

Applications that you can access for free include:

  • Photoshop
  • Premiere Pro
  • Lightroom
  • Illustrator
  • InDesign
  • Audition
  • After Effects

  • …and more!

To download your FREE software, follow the instructions below.

You will continue to have free access to the software while you are enrolled at Emerson. If you leave or graduate, the license will expire.

Sign in to Adobe.com

  1. Open a web browser (Google Chrome, Firefox, etc.) and visit adobe.com.
  2. Click Sign In at the top right of the page. Enter your Emerson email address in the email field, then select the password field.
  3. Choose Enterprise ID if you are presented with a choice.
  4. You will be directed to the Duo authentication page to complete sign-in. Enter your Emerson username and password to sign in to your Adobe account.

Download and install Creative Cloud Apps

  1. Under the Creative Cloud Apps section, select Desktop Downloads.
  2. Click the Download button under the app you would like to install to download the installer.
  3. Find the installer that you downloaded in your Downloads folder and double click to install.

About personal Adobe and Enterprise IDs

Note: If you only see a Free Trial Option when downloading and installing, this is because Adobe applications on your computer may still be signed in with your free personal Adobe ID (not your Enterprise ID). To fix this, open an Adobe application and select Help > Sign Out. Now sign back in with your Emerson email address, selecting Enterprise ID when prompted.

It is possible to have a free personal Adobe ID that uses your Emerson email address in addition to the Enterprise ID provided through this program. For more information on how this works, see Adobe's guide on ID types.
