Adobe CC Request Procedures

Student Technology Fees (STF) fund Adobe CC software licenses for the entire university. STF funds are solely dedicated to funding classrooms and computer lab technology. Adobe licenses for faculty, staff, and student employees on office computers are reimbursed to the STF funds by the university and provided at no cost to colleges and departments.

Why is an approval and registration necessary for Adobe software? 

Approval is necessary to confirm that university funds are being allotted to employees that need Adobe CC software to conduct academic, research, or business work for the university.

Registering for Adobe software is necessary to grant Towson employees, including student employees, access to sign in to the Adobe cloud and software on university office computers. The registration list also provides a license count needed to reimburse the STF funds.

Student Employees

Faculty and staff student supervisors can follow the procedures below to request Adobe CC software on department office computers for student employees that need the software to perform work for the department. 

Students that are not employed at the university are only licensed to access Adobe software in university classrooms and computer labs.
