The Adobe ETLA  offers NMSU departments, faculty, and staff the the most up-to-date version of Adobe Creative Cloud* applications and Acrobat DC pro.


The Adobe ETLA is now a part of the NMSU Enterprise Software Bundle (ESB) and is available to all faculty and staff for work purposes.

Students can use their NMSU email address and password to log in and use the Adobe software on lab machines. Virtual labs are also available. You can learn how to access the virtual lab here.


How to get Adobe Creative Cloud ( Acrobat Pro DC is included with the Creative Cloud):

All faculty and staff are already licensed for Adobe Creative Cloud. You can then go here for instructions on how you can sign in with your NMSU credentials to download and install your software.

If you are not able to activate the software after you have installed it and signed in according to the instructions linked above, you can email with a detailed message of the issue you are experiencing.
