In order to install Adobe products on their own devices and follow the instructions below, students must have a subscription associated with their Adobe Federated ID. Through BCIT’s new software portal, students can create their Adobe Federated ID and add subscriptions. Students enrolled in full-time programs can access a subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud Pro at no additional cost for the duration of their program. Students who are currently enrolled in part-time studies courses can purchase an Adobe Creative Cloud Pro subscription at a discount. Both full-time and part-time students should follow the instructions linked above prior to following the instructions in this article.
Note re: Avoiding Trial Subscription Payments
BCIT does not recommend using trial versions for Adobe products for any reason. Trial versions require that students provide Adobe with credit card information and commit to ongoing billing if not cancelled. Misconceptions about how the trial versions and subscriptions actually work can have unexpected costs for students.
