Maintenance is an additional cost to the license, that gives you free license upgrades to new versions within a specific period of time. For departmental purchases of single or concurrent licenses, maintenance is optional. The cost of maintenance is prorated according to when the product is purchased in a two-year contract period. At the end of that two-year period, maintenance would be renewed if desired. Maintenance must be purchased when the product is purchased.
Adobe just recently discontinued maintenance for their CS6 products and all maintenance will be ending soon. We will update this page once we have more information.
CS6 Institutional Installations
Beginning with CS6 and all future upgrades of non SC6 products, Adobe no longer allows us to deploy the software by DVD and serial number. Rather, we will provide the software as a 30-day trial download and supply a serializer to those who purchase a license. Once a license is purchased, you can download the software at \\files\software\adobe\cs6. The OIT Store will send installation instructions and the serializer.
This applies to institutional purchases and not personal. Students cannot be authenticated to download the software so Adobe licenses cannot be purchased by them.
Products available under Student Licensing Program
Students, faculty and staff who purchase products under the Student Licensing Program may continue to use the software upon graduation and end of employment, and may upgrade to future retail versions.
