From here you can choose to install or update a wide range of Adobe applications.

Please follow the instructions in this Adobe help article.

Of particular interest will be the setting to prevent an automatic sign in.

  3. Turn off the Select my profile automatically option.

Our new agreement with Adobe means that individual departments will no longer need to purchase licenses for most Adobe products.

No. ITS recommends that students use a personal email address if they choose to purchase an Adobe license. Students only have access to Clark accounts for 9 months after departure or graduation, so using a personal email address ensures Adobe access beyond this timeframe.

A small number of long-term Adobe users may see a notification that says “Your Adobe License will expire in 7 days”. If you see this message, please contact the Help Desk (, 508-793-7745) so that we can ensure that your device is fully switched over to our new licensing model.
