Licensing options and pricing vary by package and role (student, staff or faculty).

Please read license agreements, applicable restrictions, system requirements and download limitations carefully before downloading or submitting an order to the Software Center.

NOTE: "Lab Manager" accounts are granted a higher download limit so that the account-holder may more easily install specific titles on several computers. Lab Manager accounts will be granted only for valid reasons and then only for the specified product(s). To apply for a Lab Manager account, sign in to the Software Center and choose "Lab Manager Requests" from the menu on the left.
