Adobe Acrobat Pro and Adobe Creative Suite Now Available for Personal Computers

Adobe Acrobat Pro and Adobe Creative Suite are now available, at no cost, to College of Charleston students, faculty, and staff for temporary use on personal computers through May 31, 2020 to assist with learning, teaching, and working remotely. The Adobe Acrobat Pro version allows you to create, edit, sign, and convert most PDF files to Word documents. The Adobe Creative Suite includes visual and design applications like Photoshop, InDesign, Dreamweaver, Premiere, and AfterEffects. If you would like to request access to Adobe Acrobat Pro or Adobe Creative Suite for your personal computer, please complete a ticket using the following link:

If you are using an institutionally-owed computer, you already have access to Adobe Acrobat Pro. To locate the software on a macOS, navigate to the Applications folder, then the Adobe Acrobat 2017 folder. On a PC, click Start and scroll to the Adobe Acrobat 2017 icon. Most institutionally-owed computers do not have the Adobe Creative Suite.

Please note, there will be a cost to continue using products after the temporary access to Adobe software for personal computers ends on May 31, 2020.
