If you have never been eligible for an Adobe CC subscription through Emily Carr previously, you will have received an e-mail inviting you to register with Kivuto and collect your redemption code.

You will need to follow these steps:

  1. Register with Kivuto
  2. Once Registered/Logged in to Kivuto, click on the Creative Cloud icon
  3. Click Add to Cart
  4. Ignore any “recommended” options and continue ordering.
  5. You will eventually be presented with your redemption code in red coloured text. Very carefully copy this code and save it.
  6. Click Redeem now if you would like to immediately use your redemption code to start your Creative Cloud subscription.
  7. You will be taken to the Adobe Website. If you have an Adobe ID, login. If you don’t, Create and Adobe ID (you don’t have to use your Emily Carr e-mail address for your Adobe ID).
  8. Paste in your redemption code to activate your membership/subscription
  9. At this point you can start installing software.

    Here is some further Adobe Creative Cloud information.

    If you were eligible in a previous year for an Adobe CC subscription through Emily Carr then you WILL NOT get an e-mail from Kivuto. Your account exists with Kivuto already (even if you never collected your previous year’s redemption code). Your instructions are to go to http://ecuad.onthehub.com and log in with your username which is your Emily Carr e-mail address (i.e. ecarr@ecuad.ca)
