About Adobe Software and Employee Access

Licensing Information

BCIT’s updated agreement separates Adobe offerings into three licensed products:

  • Adobe Acrobat is site licensed (no cost) for Faculty and Staff.
  • Adobe Express is site licensed (no cost) for Faculty and Staff.
  • Adobe Creative Cloud is now limited (billed to department) and licensing will be regulated.
    Note: Access to Creative Cloud subscriptions now requires review and approval based on the use of the software at BCIT and will incur a cost to your department.

BCIT has extended all existing subscriptions to September 30, 2023. Existing subscribers will need to renew their subscription on October 1. New employees will be able to use the self-serve portal to obtain a subscription now, but will need to renew the subscription on October 1.

The extension and renewal is required to align all of our deployed products with our current license holdings.

Trial subscriptions

If you have a time-sensitive issue with a staff Adobe subscription, do not try to resolve it via a trial subscription. Instead, contact to reach BCIT’s Adobe experts and we will assist you.

BCIT recommends against the use of trial subscriptions in all situations. This is a private contract between you, your credit card and Adobe. BCIT is not involved and can not assist with remediating any issues you encounter with trial subscriptions.
