Adobe Access for Students


Beginning August 21, 2023, students will have 3 options for accessing Adobe Products while enrolled at GRCC. All options require a student to have an Adobe ID. If you do not have an Adobe ID, you can create one for free. Please reference the following article HERE on how to create an Adobe ID.

VMWare Horizon Adobe Pool

Utilizing VMWare Horizon, students can access the entire Adobe Creative Cloud Suite from home while also having access to enterprise grade hardware dedicated for Adobe use! Students enrolled in courses which require the use of Adobe products will be given access to the Adobe Remote Lab via VMWare Horizon. Students will receive access to the remote lab at the beginning of each semester and will maintain access until the conclusion of each semester or until an eligible course is dropped. The following courses are eligible for access to the remote lab:

Frequently Asked Questions

What email address does my Adobe ID need to be registered under? Students may use their GRCC email address or a personal email address to create an Adobe ID.

What if I enrolled in a course after the start date? Users are updated every 15 minutes. You may always access the ATC Open Lab remotely or visit the ATC Open Lab or Library in person should you need access sooner.

If I drop my course, can I still access Adobe products? Yes, as long as you are still enrolled at GRCC you can access Adobe products in the ATC Open Lab or Library but not via the remote lab (VMWare Horizon).

I have a subscription to Adobe products, can GRCC cancel this for me? No, GRCC does not have any control over your personal Adobe account, even if you used your GRCC email address. Please make sure you are logging in using the "Personal Account" option if you wish to cancel an existing subscription.
