Detailed description

The Microsoft EES program includes the following software:

  • Windows OS - The latest MS Windows client operating system (upgrade version only) and access to patches and updates for PCs.
  • Microsoft Office - The current version of MS Office Professional for PCs and Macs.
  • Client Access Licenses (CALs) to access MS Windows service applications, including Exchange e-mail for desktop and laptop computers.

Microsoft Office, called the Home Use Program (HUP) is available for $9.95 (distributed via download through UM’s Software Web Store) to eligible UM employees.

The basic agreement can be extended to include additional Microsoft software specifically requested by various departments, at extra cost to be paid by the departments.  As of the 2016 Microsoft EES, currently enrolled students have free access to Office 365 ProPlus through their student email account (UMConnect). 

The Microsoft EES does not cover the Windows Server operating system. EES does provide purchasing options for some Microsoft applications used by a small number of individuals. The EES Add-on program allows for subscription-based purchases. Please contact IT Central to discuss your specific software needs.

 Microsoft Select Agreement is available through the UM Bookstore for departments to obtain Windows Server software licenses not included in UM's EES. The UM Bookstore generates the licenses and duplicates the necessary media for same day service. A price list is available on the UM Bookstore website. Applications such as Visio and Project can no longer be purchased from this price list. For non-server licensing, the UM Bookstore will quote an Academic Open License instead. Questions may be directed to the UM Bookstore's Technology Facilitator
