How do I setup/access Adobe Creative Cloud?

Personal Installations (Students, Faculty, & Staff)

The process for obtaining Adobe Creative Cloud products has become even easier! All Clemson students, faculty, and staff will now be automatically provisioned an Adobe account using their email address.

Getting started is as easy as visiting and signing in with your email address. If you previously created an Adobe ID with your Clemson email address, you will be prompted to choose which account you want to log into. Users who don’t have an existing Adobe ID will be automatically redirected to the Clemson login page.

Signing in with your new Enterprise ID will give you access to extra services like Behance. Also, you won’t have to worry about renewing your subscription every year. While you are an active Clemson student, you will continue to have access to the full suite of Adobe Creative Cloud products and services.

After signing in you can click the link for Desktop Downloads where you will find download links for the standard desktop applications. Near the bottom of the page you will find the download link for Creative Cloud. Installing this small application will allow you to access your account and manage installations/updates for Adobe products on your computer.

Managing Personal Activations

Your Creative Cloud subscription allows you to activate the software on up to two computers simultaneously. If you would like to use Creative Cloud on a third device, you will need to deactivate your previous devices. Detailed instructions for this process can be found in our knowledge base here:
