Additional Information

Some software titles are available at no cost to all full-time and part-time University faculty through the Software Download Service at My Pitt. Faculty should be aware that students can also acquire this software. Some titles are also available in the Student Computing Labs. Visit the Adobe Web site for complete product information.

This software is licensed per person. These licenses may only be installed on University-owned computers.

If Acrobat or Creative Cloud is going to be installed on a user’s dedicated machine please provide us with a University of Pittsburgh primary username (@pitt.edu) account. Please see the installation instructions. If the software is to be installed on a shared machine or in a lab environment please provide the username “labinstall”. With the labinstall of the software you will need to install the software from the software download site or if you prefer you can purchase the software on a USB key or CD for Acrobat.

While CSSD's goal is to offer the University community the lowest possible software prices, these cost increases are unavoidable.

In addition, University faculty and staff can take advantage of free professional development courses, obtain teaching materials, and connect with expert users of Adobe software with the Adobe Education Exchange. Learn more about this program.
