Adobe Value Incentive Plan Term License Agreement (VIP) Activation


I purchased Adobe VIP licensed software, how do I activate it?


Through the ITS Software Store Adobe VIP licensed products such as Acrobat, Creative Cloud and others are made available to be purchased for an individual faculty to staff member. If you have purchased the software you will receive an email to notify that access is granted and provide a link for an installer. Once the software is installed (either by the user or with assistance from the Service Desk), it can be activated using the user's Adobe ID Personal Account.

There is another type of Adobe License, for entire departments, called Enterprise Term License Agreement (ETLA). If you have an ETLA license use the link at the bottom of this page to activate the software.


More information about Adobe licensing for Staff and Faculty at UM can be found here
