  • University Purchasing procedures apply.
  • These licenses are for UNLV barcoded computers only.  CLP Level 3 is the license type.
  • OIT suggests creating an account on cdwg.com and always using that same account for purchasing.
  • You will purchase a CLP Level 3 license for your UNLV barcoded computer.  Purchasing the physical media is optional as you may download the software or have OIT install with their media.
  • Watch your e-mail closely for purchase receipts, download instructions, and licensing information.
  • Once you purchase the license and receive the information, you may contact the Help Desk for installation assistance if needed.

Students, faculty, and staff may purchase Adobe products for personal use at an educational discount through http://www.cdwg.com/oncampus or www.journeyed.com.  Pricing will be higher that CLP Level 3 Institutional pricing, but still significantly less than retail pricing.
