Adobe ETLA (Enterprise Term Licensing Agreement)

Covid-19 announcement.

As a result of NMSU going online or working remotely to stem the Coronavirus spread, access to Adobe Creative Cloud in labs and classrooms is limited. Adobe has provided temporary at-home access for impacted students, faculty, and staff, so that they can continue to do their work remotely. The temporary access will last until May 31st.  Please follow the instructions here to enable access to Creative Cloud Desktop Apps on your personal device.


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 apart of the NMSU Enterprise Software Bundle (ESB) and is available to all faculty and staff for work purposes.


We do not have any student licenses available, however, the Adobe Creative Cloud is installed on all ICT computer labs for student use. Students can use their NMSU email address and password to log in and use the Adobe software on lab machines.  


For Faculty and Staff to request Adobe Acrobat DC or Adobe Creative Cloud:

You can request your NMSU email address to be added as an Adobe Enterprise ID and receive an email invitation to use and download the software. You can send your request to and please specify if you need the Creative Cloud or Acrobat DC. You will receive an email invitation from Adobe in your NMSU email inbox ( be sure to check your junk folder or trash depending on your email filters). You can then go to here for instruction on how you can sign in with your NMSU credentials and download and install your software.
