2.  You will be prompted to authenticate. Use your BCIT ID and normal password.
3.  Adobe Creative Cloud section is at the top of the page content. Click on the Provide Consent button.

You will only need to create an account once.

Adobe subscriptions and online access Sept 2020

Prior to online delivery in September 2020, creating a Federated ID was sufficient to enable access to the lab installations. Currently, online delivery now also requires a subscription assignment directly to students. These subscriptions are assigned by IT Services based on student information provided by instructors.

If students cannot access Adobe products 1 hour after creating a Federated ID, contact your instructor and mention that student information is required to provision student access. Reference the Adobe summer student licensing knowledge article.

Perform the steps below to sign in to Adobe applications in the labs:

1.  Launch an application from the menu.
2.  You will be prompted to sign in.

4.  PASSWORD = as soon as you tab or click on the password field, you will be redirected to BCIT to authenticate.
5.  Use your BCIT ID and normal password. The application will now launch.

Application login will need to be performed any time you launch an Adobe application.
