*Adobe CC includes the Adobe Substance 3D collection, an ecosystem of state-of-the-art 3D tools, including Substance 3D Painter, Designer, Sampler (previously Alchemist), and a new app, Stager. 

Note: Substance 3D for higher education doesn’t include access to 3D assets at this time. There are over 1,000 3D free assets available within Stock. These 3D assets might not be optimized for Substance but are compatible.

Adobe Stock Notice: Free Stock images will show a blue oval titled "License" and under License Type it will show "Education License". If you are not seeing this or seeing "Buy" or "Credit" you may need to log out and log back in to Stock. If you logout on the Stock website, when you sign back in make sure to chose "Company or School Account".

Creative Cloud Asset Migration Tool

You can now take all the artifacts that you invested your efforts in creating with you.

Use Adobe's Student Asset Migration portal to automatically transfer most of your creative assets associated to the assigned school account to your personal account that you create.

The tool enables Students to migrate their assets from MSU-assigned accounts to new Creative Cloud free membership accounts. 

Here’s what it takes for students to participate:

  • You must still have access to your school-assigned accounts.
  •  You will need to sign up for a new personal account where your assets are migrated
