I have deferred from university until next semester and need to 'freeze/pause' my Creative Cloud Membership - I cannot afford $22.00/month while I am not using the programs. I can't find a Support Email for Adobe anywhere online - someone please help me. The only option is to Cancel my membership and be charged $75.00, then resubscribe in 3 months.
I don't know what to do, surely it can't be this difficult and unforgiving?
There is no concept of "freezing" a subscription. Cancellation is the only option. You signed up for a year, but Adobe generously give a 50% discount for early cancellation - which is what you see as $75, presumably there would be $150 still to pay in your yearly contract.
If you want to go month by month with the right to cancel, it is $70 per month or so. There is a hefty discount for signing up for the whole year.
PS if you cancel you may not be able to get the student rate a second time...
Wow that is so dark sided. Thank you for the information though.
Nothing dark about it. You committed to 1 year of service. That's what annual subscription means.
How do I Cancel my Subscription?

going through something similar, sucks. We didnt even turn in adobe file anything in my course, seems like I could have just said I had it and used another program now im going through what youre going through I hate wasting this money
you should contact adobe support. they may not be able to freeze your subscription, but for sure, no one here (user-to-user forums) can help you do that.
using a browser that allows popups and cookies, contact adobe support by clicking here, https://helpx.adobe.com/contact.html?rghtup=autoOpen
in the chat field (lower right), type AGENT
be patient, it can take quite a while to reach a human
Adobe's Annual plans (and Student plans) are for a 12-month commitment. Here's a guide explaining the process which should help you find the best solution, and possibly save some time or money:
What You Should Know Before Canceling Your Adobe Subscription
If you do end up canceling instead of changing your plan, you should be able to resubscribe in the future with a student discount, so long as you still qualify.
Outside of that, we cannot really help further here, as this is primarily a user-to-user forum – so your best bet would be to contact Adobe Customer Care directly as suggested above.
