This tutorial will walk you through redeeming software from the Mac App Store. These instructions apply for any App Store redemption software, such as Logic or Final Cut. NOTE: To redeem software in the App Store you will need to have an Apple ID. If you have an existing Apple ID or iCloud account please use it for this install (check to see if you have one here). If you are sure you do not have an Apple ID please go to this link and complete the steps to create an Apple account without a credit card. It is recommended to use a personal email account when going through this process.

Step 2. After you open the App Store, click Sign In under Quick Links on the right side of the store.
Step 3. Enter your Apple ID (email address) and password in the space provided and click Sign In. Note: After you have successfully logged into your App Store account, you will need to locate the email sent to your student email account by Full Sail University containing your activation code(s).
Step 4. Once you have your activation code(s), go back to the App Store and click Redeem from under Quick Links.
Step 5. Enter your activation code in the space provided and click Redeem.
Note: You may be prompted to enter your password again. If so, enter your password and click Redeem Code.
