Adobe: Shop for Yourself or the Institution



St. Mary's has a contract with Adobe to provide the lowest possible prices to faculty, staff, and students purchasing Adobe software. The contract is known as Adobe CLP (contract-level pricing). Although Adobe software is sold at an educational discount through many resellers, Adobe CLP is "below volume" pricing.
