What is the Saint Mary's College Microsoft Campus Agreement?
Saint Mary's College has had a Microsoft Campus Agreement since the fall of 2007. This agreement allows students to purchase a single copy of:
Saint Mary's Students are responsible for checking their computer to make sure it is compatible with the software they purchase through the Microsoft Campus Agreement. Students are expected to confirm the compatibity of their own computers before purchasing the Microsoft software.
There are no refunds, exchanges, or returns for Microsoft Campus Agreement software.
All Saint Mary's Students classifed as full-time or part-time are eligible for the Microsoft Campus Agreement for Student Users. Students who are enrolled at another institution as their primary location for studies (University of Notre Dame, Holy Cross College, Indiana University, Bethel College) are not eligible for this program. Saint Mary's alumnae and others who are not active students are not eligible for this program.
Students must show their Saint Mary's ID card at the time of purchase to verify their eligibility for this program. Purchases will be charged to students' accounts.
Saint Mary's Students are permitted one copy of each version of software available through the Microsoft Campus Agreement to install on their personal computer. Students may not purchase additional copies of media, even if the original media was lost or damaged. (Media that was discovered to be damaged at the time of purchase may be returned for a replacement.) If a student lost her media, she would be responsible for purchasing a new copy of the software at retail price ( $280 for Office 2011 Standard for Mac, $399 for Office Professional 2013 for Windows, $499 for Office Professional 2010 for Windows, $399 for Office 2008 Standard for Mac, $499 for Office Professional 2007 for Windows, $199 for Windows 8 Pro Edition Upgrade, $219 for Windows 7 Ultimate Edition Upgrade, $259 for Windows Vista Ultimate Edition Upgrade).
Saint Mary's Students may purchase only one copy of each software title. A student who purchased Windows Vista Ultimate Edition Upgrade may not purchase Windows Vista Ultimate Edition Upgrade with SP1 later - they are the same software title. A student who purchased Windows 7 Ultimate Edition Upgrade (32-bit) may not purchase Windows 7 Ultimate Edition Upgrade (64-bit) later - they are the same software title.
Saint Mary's Students may purchase upgrades to the software they have already purchased. If a student purchased a copy of Microsoft Office 2008 for the Mac, and Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac is available through the Microsoft Campus Agreement program, the student would be eligible to purchase the new software title.
Saint Mary's Students are responsible for checking that they have their Microsoft Product Key (license number) before leaving the ResNet Office at the time of purchase. The product key should be visible through the packaging. Students should keep their product key(s) in a safe place. ResNet recommends writing down the product key(s) and storing that information in a second secure location in case the orginal product key(s) with the packaging is lost. Saint Mary's does not record or track Microsoft Product Keys. Students who lose their product key(s) are ineligible to buy a second copy of software titles.
Students wishing to upgrade their version of Windows should also refer to their computer's documentation or manufacturer's website to confirm compatibility and the availability of drivers for their computer model. Not all computers can support operating system upgrades.
ResNet recommends purchasing a computer that has Windows Vista Ultimate Edition, Windows Vista Business Edition, Windows 7 Ultimate Edition, Windows 7 Professional Edition, Windows 8, or Windows 8 Pro Edition (including Windows 8.1 and Windows 8.1 Pro) already installed on it to ensure compatibility.
Students wishing to receive assistance with installing software they purchase through the Microsoft Campus Agreement can contact the ResNet Office. The ResNet Office can assist with Microsoft Office installations. Students are responsible for backing up their own data and upgrading their own operating systems. The ResNet Office can guide students through the process of upgrading their computer, and can guide students through backing up data, but cannot complete the upgrade or backup process for students.
The ResNet Office is located at 113 Haggar College Center. The hours for the ResNet Office are posted at http://www.saintmarys.edu/resnet/. The ResNet Office is not open during fall and spring breaks, midsemester and summer vacations, and other times during the academic year when classes are not in session.
Prices are subject to change at any time. There are no refunds or exchanges for Microsoft Campus Agreement software purchases.
