Adobe Acrobat Pro DC


Adobe Acrobat Pro DC is the fully-featured version of Acrobat that allows users to edit PDFs and perform other advanced functionality with PDFs.


Faculty & Staff: Permanent faculty and staff are granted a Named User license, which permits them to use Acrobat Pro on up to 2 devices.  This licensing excludes adjunct faculty and staff who do not use a computer for 50% or more of their job.

Shared Workstations: Additional eligibility is extended to staff who do not receive a Named User license and student employees.  This is provided via a specially configured installation of Acrobat Pro, which CIS can coordinate for SPU-managed, shared computers.

Computer Labs: Acrobat Pro DC is also installed in some computer labs as part of Creative Cloud, and available in these locations by anyone with an Adobe ID login (which can be created for free).
