This page describes how Adobe products (including Adobe Acrobat Pro) are to be purchased for members of the School of Medicine.
New Method (Named-User License)
Adobe licenses are now being purchased through a contract managed by the central Technology Services group. This affects the whole university. More information can be found at http://adobe.vcu.edu/. To purchase a new Named-User License, please submit a ticket to SOMTech at http://go.vcu.edu/SOMTicket.
Before you start to fill out the form, please be sure to have this information handy:
- Type of license: Adobe Acrobat ($60/yr) or Adobe Creative Suite ($190/yr). (Prices may change based on the licensing contract. Be sure to check the price within the request form.)
- Business justification for Adobe Creative Suite license.
- User that will be using the software and their VCU eID. You cannot request the license using their vcuhealth.org account.
- SOM department/division
- Budget code or index code (charges will not be processed until later in the fiscal year)
User Independent Licenses
The process above describes a license assigned to a specific user that can be installed on multiple computers that that user uses. If the Adobe software needs to be accessible to multiple people on a single PC, then a Shared Devices License is required. Please submit a ticket to SOMTech to help request this.
Installing the Software
Follow the steps below to install the software. If further assistance is needed, please submit a ticket to SOMTech at http://go.vcu.edu/SOMTicket to get a technician to help install the software.
