    You have now obtained an Adobe Account associated with your FSUID and password. Note that if you are a user with multiple accounts (e.g., student and faculty accounts) your Adobe Account will be associated with the FSUID you use to log in to the myFSU webpage.

    Now wait at least five minutes for the account to be upgraded to Adobe for Enterprise.

Downloading Adobe Applications

  1. Select continue from the confirmation page or visit www.adobe.com and select "sign in" from the top right.

  2. Sign in with your FSUID, you must use the format fsuid@fsu.edu
    If you have multiple accounts and your FSUID is a student ID, still enter it in this form and not the format fsuid@my.fsu.edu that you are familiar with. The @fsu.edu ending is required to bring up the FSU affiliated sign-in page.

  3. Now you will be redirected to the FSU affiliated sign-in page.

    The FSU sign-in page will look similar to this:

  4. Sign into the FSU affiliated page with the same login (fsuid@fsu.edu) you used to get to this page and enter your password. This will be the same password you use to login to the myFSU webpage.

  5. After signing in, select your profile icon from the top right, then select "View Account".
