*Please note: You can install these products on as many computers as you use, both university-owned and personally-owned but you should not install this on any machine for anyone else to use. (Please don’t share your username and password with anyone or share the software with them as this is a UNCW policy violation and against Adobe’s licensing).  You can only be logged into two machines at one time.

If you are installing on a university-owned computer and are prompted to enter admin credentials, please click below to submit a service request to request this access on the computer as you will need this to install, update and even uninstall programs as you expand your usage of Creative Cloud.
