I purchased a student license while in college. I created my adobe account using my college email. The school disabled that email account upon graduation. I know the email address and password for the adobe account, but the login process requires a verification code which is sent to the disabled email address, which leaves me locked out of the account.
If you can't reset your password because you no longer have access to your old email account, try the following:
I don't understand how these instructions from Adobe could be helpful. Perhaps it was written prior to the verification step being introduced to their login process, but it seems like they're suggesting the solution to not being able to log in is to simply log in.

Do be aware that Adobe's staffing is impacted by the virus, so wait times are long
Thanks, John. I was on that page previously, but I hadn't yet created this account, so I wasn't able to start a chat session. I'll reach out to Adobe now.
In my Experiences it is Extremely rare that any college Disables the Email Addresses of it students.
One big reason for this is once an email address is used on any domain, Your.Name.Whatever @ CollegeNmae . EDU or whatever that first part Can not and certianly Should Not be used again for someone else. So there is No point in canceling and Restricting Access to that address.
So have you contacted the college? And or Tried to Access that email account?
Yes - it is disabled. It looks like I had an opportunity prior to graduation to migrate it from a student account to an alumni account, but having missed the window, my credentials to do so have expired.

My daughter's college disables all of the student email addresses of those no longer attending the school.
