The university negotiates an agreement with Microsoft Corporation that allows the distribution of commonly used Microsoft products at significantly reduced costs. The current Microsoft Campus Agreement is in effect from December 1, 2014, through November 30, 2018. Campus-licensed software is coordinated through Software Licensing and Distribution.
