If you have any of the following WFU services, please take the necessary steps to create personal accounts, migrate your data, or transfer your account before your account is deactivated.


Adobe Creative Cloud – Migrate your assets to a personal account

If you have an Adobe Creative Cloud account using your WFU Google account you will need to use the Adobe Student Asset Migration service to take your Creative Cloud (CC) assets, such as CC files, portfolio, Spark, Xd and more, with you into a new account. This Creative Cloud Free membership includes trial versions of most of Adobe’s creative apps, and graduates can easily upgrade to get full versions of all the apps and services that were included in their school accounts. Visit graduation.adobe.com for all the details regarding creating a new Adobe account and migrating your assets. Take advantage of Adobe’s special Graduation Offer – a 40% discount on Creative Cloud individual licenses ($29.99/month) for the first year after graduation.
