Due to changes in Adobe Licensing, the Adobe instance of Virtual Labs 2.0 will require an Adobe account with the appropriate License applied. We apologize for any inconvenience, but Adobe currently prohibits virtual lab licensing.

Students pay US$19.99/mo the first year, and US$29.99/mo after that. Regular price is US$52.99.  Adobe products remain available in physical labs on both the Cheney and Spokane campuses and on library check out laptops.
