Saint Mary's College has had a Microsoft Campus Agreement since the fall of 2007, allowing students to purchase copies of Microsoft Office and Microsoft Windows for $10 per software title.

    Beginning August 20, 2015, Saint Mary's College will offer Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus for Students for free to our students. Office 365 ProPlus offers full versions of Microsoft Office to be downloaded and installed on students' personally-owned computers. Versions of Office for mobile devices are also included with Office 365 ProPlus. After a license has been assigned, a Saint Mary’s student can install Office 365 ProPlus software on up to five personally-owned computers and five personally-owned mobile devices. There are no monthly subscription fees associated with the Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus for Students license.

    Current versions of Microsoft Office through Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus for Students are:

    • Microsoft Office 2016 for Mac (includes Word, Excel, and PowerPoint)
    • Microsoft Office 2013 Professional Plus for Windows (includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access)
    • Previous versions of Microsoft Office may be available at Microsoft's discretion.

    All Saint Mary's Students classifed as full-time or part-time are eligible for the Microsoft Campus Agreement and Office 365 software. 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 Microsoft Campus Agreement or Office 365 software.

    The Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus for Students license will expire automatically 30 days after a student's active affiliation with Saint Mary’s College ends (this includes graduation). At expiration, the software will enter a reduced-functionality mode (files can be viewed but it will not be possible to edit or create new files) and the OneDrive associated with a student's Saint Mary’s account will no longer be accessible.

    Students can obtain a license for Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus for Students in person at the ResNet Office. Students must show their Saint Mary's ID card to verify their eligibility for this program and sign an agreement to obtain the license. The software can then be downloaded directly from Microsoft.

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.


    The information below pertains to the Microsoft Campus Agreement and the purchase of physical software media for Microsoft Office and Microsoft Windows. Physical media sales of Microsoft Office will be available only as long as supplies last.

Saint Mary's alumnae and others who are not active students are not eligible for Microsoft Campus Agreement or Office 365 software.

    Physical media sales of Microsoft Office will be available only as long as supplies last. Purchases by all students must be made in person at the ResNet Office.

    The ResNet Office has a minimal supply of Microsoft Office software on discs in inventory. The software will be available for sale until our supplies have been exhausted. Students may purchase a single copy of:

    • Microsoft Office 2013 for Windows
    • Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac
    • Microsoft Office 2010 for Windows
    • Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac

    for $10 each.

    The ResNet Office also has a supply of Windows software on discs available. Students may purchase a single copy of:

    • Windows 8 Pro Upgrade
    • Windows 7 Ultimate Edition Upgrade
    • Windows Vista Ultimate Edition Upgrade

    for $10 each.

    Students must show their Saint Mary's ID card to verify their eligibility for this program and sign a license agreement to purchase the software. Purchases will be charged to students' accounts.

    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.

    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.

    There are no refunds, exchanges, or returns for Microsoft Campus Agreement software.

    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 and wanted another physical copy, she would be responsible for purchasing a new copy of the software at retail price.

    Saint Mary's Students may purchase only one copy of each software title. A student who purchased Windows 7 Ultimate Edition Upgrade may not purchase Windows 7 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.

    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 the operating system on a computer, and can guide students through backing up personal data, but ResNet 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.
