Our primary usage for Adobe products is in classrooms for the students and the faculty who teach courses which require the software.

Beyond the above needs, we have limited Adobe product licenses available for faculty and staff use and we are collecting use justification for license assignment. This is not a purchase justification and there are currently no costs or charges associated with this justification. We are keeping this information on file for future use and how our licenses are distributed and used.

Please note: this request form is for faculty/staff of the College only.  If you are a student, you should make use of this software in one of our computer labs.
