This article gives instruction on how you can access the latest version of Adobe through BYU-Idaho. 

Students cannot download Adobe from the school’s account onto their personal computers, with the exception of certain Communications and Art classes that provide short-term access.

Employees will need to submit a ticket request to the I.T. Department to gain Adobe access on their personal computers.

This means that your affiliation with the University grants you access to use its Adobe products through the school’s shared account.

There are some exceptions for this rule through certain Communications and Art classes.
