How to Obtain This Software

Personal Student, Faculty/Staff Purchase

Students, Faculty and Staff can make a personal purchase of Adobe Creative Cloud from:

Institutional Purchase

For some of their products - Adobe Stock and Creative Cloud (including Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere Pro) - Adobe no longer offers perpetual license support and has moved to a subscription-based licensing model. For others - including Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, Adobe Captivate, Adobe ColdFusion family, and Adobe Photoshop Elements - we can still purchase perpetual products. 

Making a Purchase

  1. If you’re not sure which purchase option(s) (perpetual vs subscription) is available for the Adobe product you’re interested in, contact a current Adobe vendor to learn options (see current vendors below).

  2. For subscription purchases, have your VIP number ready. Contact your department IT support person for more information on VIP numbers.

  3. For perpetual purchases, have this number ready: CLP# 4400684499 (the CLP number allows you to get the best price*)

  4. Request a quote:

    1. If the order is $2,499 or less, request at least one quote from current Adobe vendors (see current vendors below), and then complete the service request form in Wolfmart selecting the NY State IT Umbrella Contract. Then the purchase order will be processed.

    2. If the order is $2,500 or more, request at least one quote from current Adobe vendors and then complete the service request form in Wolfmart. These orders need to be processed following NYS IT Umbrella distributor based contract requirements: A formal RFQ (Request for Quotation) will be send to all authorized Adobe resellers for quotes (the purchase procedure will take longer because of the RFQ process). Contact Procurement (2-6010) if you have any questions.
