I had a 7-day free trial of Adobe Creative Suite, but then afterward, my university gave me a free subscription until May 31. When I tried to cancel the free trial, there was not anything to cancel yet I was still charged $20 every month. I went to "view plan" but it only showed up my university's free plan. How can I cancel my previous free trial so that I am not charged again?
Were both the subscription you bought and the one through your school through the same email/Adobe ID? If not, you need to log out of the school ID and then log back in to your personal ID to cancel your subscription.
However, if you've already gone past the end of the trial period, you will have to contact customer support. This is a public forum, not Adobe support. Users, including the ACPs and MVPs, can't provide support for account, subscription, billing, download, or product activation issues. Support for those issues requires an Adobe employee.

If the CSR refers you to the forums, insist on speaking with a supervisor and keep moving up the chain until you get someone who knows what they are talking about.
