Microsoft Home Use Program

Available to staff and faculty

As part of Scripps College’s participation in Microsoft’s Volume Licensing Program, current Scripps faculty and staff members are eligible to participate in Microsoft’s Home Use Program (HUP). This program provides access to a copy of Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 (for Windows) or Office for Mac 2011 to install and use on your home computer. Some product and language versions may not be available at the time you place an order.

Note: The online store only allows users to purchase either one copy of Office Professional Plus 2010 or Office for Mac 2011.

Under Microsoft’s HUP, users of qualifying applications at Scripps (i.e., Office) may acquire a licensed copy of the corresponding HUP software to install and use on a home computer. You may continue to use HUP software while you work at Scripps and as long as the corresponding software you use on campus has active Software Assurance coverage.

HUP software is available as a download for the extremely low price of $9.95 (for an additional $12 you can receive the actual DVD installation media).
