User Testimonial

Jericho Fulgencio, Help Desk Analyst, Rancho Santiago Community College School District

“The Adobe offering from FoundationCCC has allowed thousands of our students access to the Adobe Enterprise products, throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. The FoundationCCC program coordination team in particular has been incredibly responsive to our needs as a District. They have helped us overcome challenges related to licensing and changes in the Adobe product offerings, ensuring continuity in our class offerings and remote/hybrid learning scenarios. Each semester we have seen an increase in usage in the Adobe apps from both our instructors and students, and we look forward to working with FoundationCCC in the future to address these needs.”
