An Adobe Enterprise ID is associated with your UTSA email address. You will use your email address at the Adobe Sign In page which then will redirect you to a UTSA sign in page where you will sign in with your UTSA network ID (abc123) and your network passphrase.

Contact OITConnect, by phone (210) 458-5555, or email oitconnect@utsa.edu.

You can also consult the Adobe Creative User Guide for Window or Mac computers.

You may be signed into your Adobe Enterprise ID on up to two computers at a time.

If you have purchased a Creative Cloud subscription using your UTSA email address, you will be prompted to select either Adobe ID (your personal license) or Enterprise ID (UTSA license). Your cloud storage is not connected between your Adobe ID and Enterprise ID.

In order to be eligible, you must be a university employee designated as staff or faculty.

All faculty, staff, and students can use Adobe applications on university-owned computers.

(Not all university owned computers will have the device license installed on them. Only computers that are in labs or classrooms will have the device license).

All OIT owned labs and classrooms are in the process of having this software installed. To have software installed in a departmental lab or classroom, please contact your ITA or open a ticket with OITConnect.

No, it is not possible to merge the two accounts. You can move items saved in your Adobe personal account and libraries to the Enterprise account by downloading them to your local computer and then once signed with your Enterprise ID, syncing them to the new account.

Please use this instruction sheet for migration instructions.

After you separate from the university, your account will be removed, and access to the software will end.

An internet connection is required for authentication. Once you have signed in, you will be able to continue working offline. Certain features or services may not be available while the application is offline.
