Flexible licensing options for primary and secondary schools and districts

Last updated: 19th August 2019

Bring Adobe Creative Cloud to your school or district with affordable, easy-to-manage licensing options available through the Adobe Value Incentive Plan (VIP). You’ll enhance teaching and learning while helping students develop essential digital skills for college and career success.


Benefits include:

Universal access for all ages
Give your students, teachers, and staff access to the latest industry-leading creative software so they can design, share, and publish compelling content across all media and devices. And now, students under the age of 13 can have their own Creative Cloud accounts provided that your school deploys in accordance with legislation.

Budget predictability
A low-cost, flat-fee, single-license purchase with one annual or multiyear contract for devices owned or leased by the school, and users attending or working for the school.

Flexible deployment and management
Designed for an individual school or district, licensing options include a web-based Admin Console that makes it easy to centrally manage and deploy licenses.

Lab, classroom, and home use
Schools can use shared device licenses to allow anyone to access Creative Cloud apps on a given device in the lab or classroom. Shared device licenses also allow those with their own paid subscriptions to log into entitled machines and access their profiles and saved work. With named-user licenses, schools can give a student or teacher access to Creative Cloud on any device they use, including personal devices at home.

Free instructional resources
Get your educators up to speed on Creative Cloud apps so they can ignite students’ creativity. The Adobe Education Exchange website https://edex.adobe.com offers free professional development and peer-to-peer collaboration plus lessons for general education classes using Adobe’s creative tools.
