Students MCA Software
Who Can Participate:
Actively enrolled UWG students. "Actively Enrolled" refers to students who are enrolled for a regular semester term. For example, enrollment in a Continuing Education course alone will not qualify you to participate in the MCA subscription. If a faculty/staff member is also enrolled as a student at the university, licensing is based on their primary assignment within the university. (If you are unsure if you are eligible, contact the Helpdesk at 678-839-6587.)

Microsoft Campus Agreement
Microsoft Campus Agreement (MCA) is an annual licensing program specifically created to address the unique software needs of higher education institutions. Because of its innovative design which licenses users rather than computers, Campus Agreement is an optimal choice for institutions looking to streamline and economize their software distribution. Campus Agreement also allows faculty/staff* and students to subscribe to select Microsoft products for a 12-month period and have access to current updates at a significantly reduced cost. This makes it an affordable and efficient platform from which to standardize programs in order to enhance productivity.
*NOTE: Employees who are non-computer users, such as maintenance or food service staff, may be excluded from the faculty and staff counts. If a faculty/staff member is also enrolled as a student at the university, licensing is based on their primary assignment within the university.
