Adobe CLP for Personal Use|
Adobe software for personal use is sold under the terms of the
UW's Adobe Contractual Licensing Program, which is renewed every 2
If you purchase during Adobe's upgrade window (which begins on the date Adobe announces a new version and continues for 90 days) you are
entitled to a no-cost upgrade. The time period during which you may claim your upgrade is defined for each product release. Click here for directions on how to claim your upgrade: http://kb.wisc.edu/wiscsoftware/page.php?id=13797
Students, faculty, and staff cannot purchase maintenance for
the software sold under this program. Personal licenses are treated
like retail licenses, which do not offer maintenance.
If you are still a student, faculty, or staff when a new
version is released, and you want that new version, you would need to
purchase a new full license.
If you are no longer a student, faculty,
or staff when a new version is released, and you want that new version, you
would need to purchase a commercial (retail) upgrade for your license. Although commercial upgrade licenses are more expensive than Student and Teacher licensing products, they are much less expensive than a full-version commercial license. In other words, if you keep your proofs of purchase and stay current on versions, you will never have to purchase a full commercial license.
