  1. You will receive an email from Adobe once your request has been processed
  2. Once you receive the email from Adobe, click on the Get Started link provided in the email.
  3. The link will take you to Adobe’s website and prompt you to create an Adobe account. Create a secure and memorable password. This password will be different from your StarID password
