Library and Technology Services provides, supports and administers licenses for the “Creative Cloud All Apps 50GB” product. These licenses are assigned to Lehigh user accounts and can move with users to different computers, as well as be reassigned to others after staffing changes (no more serial numbers). Users can activate their assigned license on up to two computers at any one time, and subsequent activations do provide an easy prompt to deactivate previous computers there is no need to go back and deactivate (no more lost licenses). All subscriptions through LTS are synchronized with its annual purchasing agreement, which runs from August of the current year through August of the following year. Renewals and new subscriptions in August are for the entire year (12 month) period. License availability after August are subject to availability as LTS must purchase its stock in multiples of fifty licenses. In most cases there will be licenses available, but it difficult to guarantee availability.
LTS-Supported License Subscriptions
Adobe Creative Cloud Named User License (NUL) subscriptions are the only licensing model that LTS will support. LTS can not install or support any Adobe software that is not a Named User License managed within our Adobe Admin Console.
To find out more about LTS’ Adobe Creative Cloud Named User Licensing program, contact your Computing Consultant.
Full year (12 mo) pricing at the beginning of the period in August 2019 was $170/user which included an additional 10% discount from Adobe for joining their new volume purchase program. Until the next renewal period begins July 10, 2020 we will be unable to give pricing for next year, however it is a fairly safe bet that it will not be less than the original, before-discount $190/user from 2019. For comparison, paying directly to Adobe for the same subscription will cost your department $29.99 user/mo x 12 mo = $359.88 user/year + PA Sales Tax.
Departmental acquisitions of any quantity will need to provide the following information before licenses are assigned to your staff, faculty (and/or students):
- The 6-digit Lehigh Index Number to be billed.
- Authorization from that account's Authorized Signer.
- A verified list of Lehigh personal account usernames that will have Named User Licenses assigned to them.¹ ²
¹ Temporary ("x*") and vendor accounts cannot be assigned a license due to how the Federated ID authentication system functions.
² Use of departmental information ("in*") accounts is discouraged.
