How do I obtain Adobe Acrobat Pro for my University-Owned Computer?


How do I obtain Adobe Acrobat Pro for my university-owned machines, both PCs and Macs?


All faculty and staff have the ability to obtain Adobe Acrobat Pro for university-owned machines.


PC Instructions:

  1. Click the Windows Start Button.
  2. In the Search Box, type: "Software Center."
  3. Select "Software Center."
  4. You will find Acrobat Pro under "Applications."
  5. Click on "Adobe Acrobat Pro DC" and click "Install" (or "Reinstall" if it has been installed previously).


Mac Instructions:

  1. Click on the magnifying glass icon in the upper right corner of your Mac, and search for "Self Service" and double-click it. (NOTE: If you do not have Self Service installed, please enter a request to have Self Service added to your machine.)
  2. Find Adobe Acrobat on the list and click "Install."

*Please note: If you use software that requires a very specific version of Adobe Acrobat please DO NOT install this software. Installing the latest version of Acrobat Pro will uninstall all previous versions as well as Acrobat Reader (as Reader is no longer needed) and LiveCycle Designer.
