Alternatives to Adobe Creative Cloud

January 10, 2014  by: Admin

Edited July 11, 2017

While the Department of Art currently supports Adobe CS6 applications and will soon support Creative Cloud, we encourage the exploration of other alternatives. Adobe’s move to the subscription-based CC model requires that students pay a monthly fee rather than paying a one-time price. the fee increases over time. This is an overall more costly move for students over Adobe’s previous educational offerings, and requires continual payment in order to use the software. If you choose not to enter into this funding model with Adobe, we welcome you to explore alternatives, and work with your individual instructors regarding class requirements.
