The campus standalone Adobe Acrobat Pro licenses expires at the end of this calendar year. New computers are being provisioned with Adobe Acrobat Reader, or Creative Cloud (which includes Adobe Acrobat Pro) as needed. Existing installations of the standalone Acrobat Pro will need to switch to either Acrobat Reader or Creative Cloud before the end of the year. Campus-managed computers can obtain Acrobat Reader or Creative Cloud in Software Center (PC) and Self Service (Mac).
Please note that Creative Cloud requires a per-user license to be assigned to you (at no charge); if you don’t have one already, you can request one.
