Adobe Creative Cloud Temporarily Available for Students on Personal Devices


Bellevue College students can download Adobe Creative Cloud apps on personal devices. Adobe is providing this temporary access to students while classes are not being conducted in campus classrooms.


Bellevue College Students,

UPDATE : Adobe has once again extended access to Adobe CC until August 14,2020 for students. (previous extension was July 6,2020 and the first extension was 5/31/20).

On August 14, 2020 access to Adobe CC from home computers will no longer be available.

BC does not expect another extension from Adobe beyond August 14th. 


As a result of campus closure, student access to Adobe Creative Cloud while in labs and classrooms is not available. Adobe has provided temporary at-home access for impacted students so that they can continue their work remotely.

Adobe is making temporary at-home access to Creative Cloud available until  July 6,2020 for currently enrolled Active Bellevue College students.  Adobe has indicated this is the final extension they will be giving. 

Please follow the instructions below to enable access to Creative Cloud Desktop Apps on your personal device if you are a Current/Active enrolled student at Bellevue College.

Note:  It is important for you to make sure your personal device is capable of utilizing Adobe apps. 

Here's where it is important to mention before you download any application: "just because you can download any application, doesn't mean you should". 

  • The Adobe applications are large and labor intensive on computers. Make sure your computer is capable of handling the resources required for these applications to run.
  • Only download what you need and if you know your computer is capable of running these high end applications.
