ITS has received several inquiries regarding our recent announcement of the college’s plan to enter into an Adobe Enterprise License Agreement. This message is to clarify the applications that will be offered under the agreement.
The college will be receiving a collection of Adobe products which together are called the “Master Collection.” The Master Collection includes the full suite of Creative Cloud applications, several non-Creative Cloud titles, and two legacy products from Creative Suite 6 - specifically Adobe Encore CS6 and Adobe Fireworks CS6.
The individual applications included in Adobe’s Production Premium, Design Premium and Web Premium packages are also a part of the Master Collection suite.
Included in Master Collection:
The establishment of this agreement means that the cost for the products in the Master Collection will be covered under a campus license and will no longer need to be purchased through individual department funds. The campus license allows for the installation of these products on any college-owned computer.
ITS is working to have the agreement finalized and in place before the start of the fall semester, and to establish a distribution plan. In the interim, users should refrain from using college funds to purchase any of the products referenced above if at all possible. Any Adobe software that is not part of the Master Collection should continue to be purchased through departmental funds as needed.
More details will be announced in the coming weeks.
