Current Adobe Departmental Upgrades

Time is running out for Adobe departmental software upgrades.

If you have purchased any Adobe® CLP departmental software and upgrade plan from the IC Bookstore from June 2007 until now, you should have previously received an e-mail from Adobe about how to obtain your any upgrade.

The IC Bookstore does not receive any information about upgrade e-mails. These emails are sent from Adobe directly to the e-mail address that is on the initial order form filled out at the Bookstore at the time of purchase.

Note: This does not apply to any personal purchases of Adobe products by students, staff, or faculty; only departmental purchases may obtain an upgrade plan.

For software purchased under current contract (June 2007 to June 30, 2009):

If you already have a current upgrade plan that you have taken advantage of, and are at the current version level and want to renew it, then you may purchase an upgrade plan under the new Adobe/IC Bookstore contract starting July 1, 2009.

After June 30, 2009, if you already have a current upgrade plan, but have not taken advantage of it, are not at the current version of the Adobe products (i.e. CS4 not CS3 or earlier), you cannot purchase a new upgrade plan under the new Adobe/IC Bookstore contract starting July 1, 2009, through June 30, 2011.

For purchases under new contract (July 1, 2009, to June 30, 2011):

When initially ordering Adobe CLP departmental software from the Bookstore, you should consider ordering the upgrade plan at the time of purchase; otherwise the upgrade plan is not available at a later date.

Please note that the department upgrade plan is the least expensive way of ensuring that you have the latest version and enhancements of the software after the initial software purchase.

The new Adobe® upgrade plan pricing and availability will not be ready until after the new contract is in place. Estimated availability date is the week of July 6, 2009.
