Partner version: Adobe enables distance learning globally for schools impacted by COVID-19

With heightened concern around COVID-19, many schools and universities worldwide are building disaster mitigation plans and preparing for school-wide closures. In response to this, Adobe will be providing schools and universities that have Creative Cloud access in onsite computer labs with temporary at-home licenses of Creative Cloud desktop apps for their students and faculty, at no additional cost. Access will be granted through May 31, 2020, and Adobe will bring forward or move back this date based on how the situation evolves. This will enable students to continue their learning remotely.

Adobe will enable Creative Cloud desktop app access to students and faculty who are part of an eligible EDU org (ETLA or VIP). All Creative Cloud desktop apps that are available in an All Apps subscription will be available.

Schools and universities will need to request access to participate in this program. Review the Partner FAQ below for more information.
