Open license for charities and academic institutions

Easy to understand and administer, Open License for Charities & Schools is flexible enough to meet the needs of a broad range of organizations. After an initial order of five or more licenses (5 points), you can reorder as few as one license, so you order only what you need. You receive license confirmation information electronically and can quickly and easily view your license purchase history, so there’s never any question about which licenses you own. Your school gets even more value, more manageability, and more assistance with optional Software Assurance. 

Software assurance

More than an upgrade, Software Assurance can help your school get the most value from up-to-date technology by providing a powerful combination of productivity benefits, support, tools, and training.
