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

Both are subscription licenses that enable OETC K-12 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.

Adobe ETLA

OETC has negotiated a custom Enterprise Term Licensing Agreement (ETLA) with Adobe. This FTE-based agreement enables OETC K-12 members to purchase for their entire district at once or to purchase on a per-site basis.

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

Adobe VIP

OETC offers the Adobe Value Incentive Plan (VIP) to facilitate both district-wide licensing and smaller purchases (for individual computers, users or sites) 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.

Below is a summary of all Adobe K-12 licensing options through OETC. Choose how you would prefer to license—by district, by site, or by classroom, lab or individual—and then select the ETLA or VIP license that best suits your needs.
