Adobe is changing the world through digital experiences. We help our customers create, deliver, and optimize content and applications.

OETC offers two ways to license Creative Cloud: Adobe ETLA and Adobe VIP.

Both are subscription licenses that enable OETC Hi-Ed members to purchase the latest Creative Cloud software while benefiting from the larger buying power of the consortium, gaining the convenience of a single purchase, and achieving budget certainty for keeping up-to-date with Adobe products.

About Adobe ETLA

OETC has negotiated a custom Enterprise Term Licensing Agreement (ETLA) with Adobe. This FTE-based agreement enables OETC Hi-Ed members to purchase for their entire institution with no minimum FTE requirement, making it the most versatile Adobe licensing option.

Not sure how to calculate FTE? See our brief FTE tutorial.

About Adobe VIP

For Hi-Ed members purchasing for individual computers or individual users, OETC offers the Adobe Value Incentive Plan (VIP) to facilitate smaller purchases, also with no minimum FTE requirement.

Legacy Adobe Licensing: Creative Suite 6 (CS6)

As of February, 2015, Adobe no longer supports CS6. OETC has partnered with Adobe to bring the value and savings the consortium enjoyed with the CS6 to the subscription licensing required to purchase Creative Cloud.
