Adobe Student Licensing Update – October 2020

Student Adobe licensing update – October 2020

The sudden transition to online delivery changed the way Adobe software is licensed and provided to students.

New licensing models were created to support this method of delivery and took time to develop. There were several temporary accommodations from March 2020 through September 2020. BCIT thanks all students and instructors for bearing with us during the licensing uncertainty and change.

A longer-term agreement has now been reached – effective October 1 2020, BCIT will continue to provide subscriptions for all currently enrolled students for programs where use is essential – this determination is made by individual programs and departments.

BCIT will be extending licensing until the end of the current course/program, or the end of the BCIT/Adobe agreement which ends March 31, 2023, whichever comes first.
