JAMS - Accessing Premiere Pro

The Fall 2020 update of Premiere Pro contained bugs that could prevent it from launching correctly in macOS lab machines. The following workaround will allow users to launch and use the application without issue.

Signing into JAMS computers

Signing in is a two-step process where a user will need to enter their password two times to access the computer.


1. At the Microsoft login screen, please enter your UWM email address eg: epanther@uwm.edu. Click Next and enter your password.

Microsoft Azure Login


2. After successfully logging in, you will be presented with another prompt to re-enter your password. After re-entering your password, click Continue.
