What is Creative Cloud for K-12 education?
Creative Cloud for education is a licensing option for Creative Cloud memberships. It includes a device licensing option for classroom and lab environments that allows multiple students to utilize the same application on a single computer without having to log in or authenticate license ownership. CC for education includes a named-user licensing option with services, where a license is granted to each user rather than the device. CC for education is available through the Value Incentive Program (VIP) for higher education and primary and secondary institutions as well as qualified nonprofit organizations.
Flexible licensing options for primary and secondary schools and districts.
Bring Adobe Creative Cloud to your school or district with affordable, easy-to-manage licensing options available through the Adobe Value Incentive Plan (VIP). You’ll enhance teaching and learning while helping students develop essential digital skills for college and career success.
Universal access for all ages
Give your students, teachers, and staff access to the latest industry-leading creative software so they can design, share, and publish compelling content across all media and devices. And now for the first time, students under the age of 13 can have their own Creative Cloud accounts provided that your school deploys in accordance with COPPA and other legislation.
A low-cost, flat-fee, single-license purchase with one annual or multiyear contract for devices owned or leased by the school, and users attending or working for the school.
Flexible deployment and management
Designed for an individual school or district, licensing options offer a web-based Admin Console that makes it easy to centrally manage and deploy licenses.
Classroom and home use
Schools can use device licenses to allow anyone to access Creative Cloud apps on a given device in the classroom, and can use named-user licenses to give a student or teacher access to Creative Cloud on any device they use, including personal devices at home.

Adobe Creative Cloud All Apps – Shared-Device License Option
Extend the full power of Creative Cloud across your institution.
Starting in early 2019, you’ll have a new way to give your students and faculty access to the world’s best creative apps and services in shared environments like labs, libraries, and classrooms. With new shared device licensing, they can use the latest versions of Creative Cloud—including cloud-based apps and services—on entitled school machines. Plus, those who have their own paid Creative Cloud subscriptions can log into entitled machines to access their profiles and their saved work.
To use shared device licenses, students and faculty in shared environments can simply log in with an Enterprise or Federated ID and password provisioned by the school. At colleges and universities, they also have the option to log in using a free Adobe ID that they create on adobe.com.

And best of all, schools that currently have device licensing can migrate to new shared device licenses at no additional cost.
Benefits of shared device licensing
Students and faculty can:
• Access new cloud-based apps when using entitled devices.
• Use Adobe Portfolio to create websites that showcase their work.
• Find the perfect font for any creative project with Adobe Fonts.
• Store and sync their work to the cloud so they can access it anywhere.
Software administrators can:
• Create groups of licenses to match device locations and assign a sub-admin to manage each environment.
• See how many students are using entitled devices in each environment to help ensure that coverage matches needs.
Provisioning your labs, libraries, and classrooms with shared device licensing does require a redeployment, but you can do it on your own terms. Here’s how it works:
- Starting February 1, 2019 – you can self-service migrate from your current device licenses to shared device licenses.
- Migration involves creating a new package and deploying to relevant devices.
- Once migration starts, you have 30 days to complete the process before your device licenses become inactive.
- You can track and manage your migration from your Admin Console.
