Simply sign in at https://creative.adobe.com/products/download/creative-cloud with your SDSUid and password to license your account.

Simply go to gmail.sdsu.edu and you will be redirected to the Microsoft portal to login with your SDSUid. (Note: If you have already logged in to an application using Single Sign-On (SSO), you may not need to re-enter your SDSUid and password.)
