This past fall semester, a CTS Technology Innovation Program proposal for an annual subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud was awarded.  This subscription covers the installation of the Adobe Master Collection Suite on SUNY Oswego-owned Mac and PC computers and allows a home use option to faculty and staff who can purchase it at a discounted rate for use on their personal computers.

Having the opportunity to obtain Adobe Cloud for the Spring semester is a great opportunity for Oswego students to be taught with state of the art industry software and ensure they are prepared for the workforce. Our students will be among the few in the SUNY system to have access to this technology, only a few other schools have it.

Currently, CTS staff are working on several projects to ensure a smooth roll-out of Adobe Creative Cloud. They include:

  • Building installer packages for the various titles that will make the software available to faculty and staff.

  • Creating a plan to incorporate the software into computer labs and classrooms being mindful of system and hardware requirements of the various Adobe titles.

  • Building an Adobe software install request that will be available through the Help Desk Self Service system for requesting an install.

CTS is working towards rolling out the installer packages and service request for mid-February. Another announcement will be sent when the software is available. The software will be available at no cost for all faculty and staff in academic departments.  For departments outside of CLAS, SCMA, SoB and SoE, there will be an annual fee as outlined below:

  • Adobe Acrobat Professional free for all faculty & staff.
  • Non-Academic departments that purchase one title - $100/license
  • Non-Academic departments that purchase base package* - $125/license
  • Non-Academic departments that purchase base + - $175/license

*The base package will consist of Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.

Anyone requesting an install prior between January 1 - June 30 will receive a 50% discount on the above prices for the remainder of the year.

Please note that the pricing is an annual fee that will be charged to non-academic departments on July 1 of each year.
