The Adobe Education Enterprise Agreement (EEA) provides primary and secondary schools with an easy-to-manage licensing program that gives students and teachers access to Creative Cloud apps. Optional bundles for Adobe Captivate, Presenter, Photoshop Elements, and Premiere Elements are also available.
This one- or two-year term-based licensing program allows for predictable budgeting under a single agreement. Based on estimated street pricing, most primary and secondary schools that need approximately 15 or more computers in a lab or classroom environment will find that an EEA agreement is a lower-cost option than a Creative Cloud for education plan, depending on the institution's FTE (full-time equivalent) staff/teacher count.

A Creative Cloud for education device license is a new Adobe licensing option for classrooms and labs that allows multiple students to use the same creative application on a single computer without having to log in or authenticate license ownership. A device license can be used for a single app or the complete plan. Online services and storage are not included.
Creative Cloud for education includes a named-user licensing option, where a license is granted to each user rather than each device. A named-user license can be used for the complete plan or a single-app option, each with online services, and is also available for purchase through the Value Incentive Plan (VIP) program. Each named-user license includes two one-on-one, 30-minute Adobe Expert Services sessions per year and comes with the ability to install a second copy for the same person on a personally owned device as long as it’s not used simultaneously (known as “work-at-home rights”).
A Creative Cloud for education complete plan includes all the Creative Cloud apps. A single-app plan gives users access to one app, such as Photoshop CC or Illustrator CC. Single-app customers on a named-user license will also have access to 20GB of storage and services such as the ability to sync, share, and collaborate with colleagues and the ability to create a customized online portfolio with Behance ProSite.
You may be familiar with Adobe’s CLP and TLP volume programs that are available for purchasing licenses of perpetual software from Adobe. VIP is a membership-based buying program that customers join to purchase Creative Cloud for education. With a VIP membership, there are no minimum license purchase requirements. Management is easy, deployment is immediate, and compliance is automatic. There is no cost to join VIP. Learn more about VIP ›
Deployment for device licenses must be done via the Creative Cloud Packager. Named-user deployment is either via the Admin Console or Creative Cloud Packager. Learn more about Creative Cloud Packager ›
If you’re looking to provide institution-wide deployment customized to fit your requirements, you can purchase Creative Cloud for enterprise through an Enterprise Term License Agreement (ETLA). Primary and secondary schools and legal entities may also purchase Creative Cloud apps through an Education Enterprise Agreement (EEA).
