Under the Home Use Program, full-time faculty and staff may acquire a licensed copy of the corresponding Home Use Program software (e.g. Office) to install and use on a home computer. You may continue using HUP software while you are under our employment and as long as the corresponding software you use at work has active Software Assurance coverage.
Customers pay $9.95 for the license and download of each product available. Physical back-up media is available for an additional $12.00 (includes shipping/not available for Language Packs). Prices may vary outside the U.S.
