Microsoft Software for Faculty & Staff

The University of Louisiana at Lafayette and the Student Government Association (via STEP) are proud to offer a selection of Microsoft software to our faculty, staff, and students!

Faculty and Staff have two options:

Work at Home Program

Through the Work at Home (WAH) program faculty and staff are granted the right to use a second copy of a limited selection of products on either a home or portable computer for work-related purposes.  If an employee separates from the University they are no longer eligible to use the software and must remove it from all computers on which it was installed.  The University in partnership with Kivuto Solutions (formerly e-Academy) is distributing the software via an online store (see link below).  The software is available as a direct download, or may be purchased with shipped media (Install DVD).

Access

Faculty/Staff Work at Home program - WAH:

  1. Go to the download page
  2. Enter your CLID and password
  3. Select the Microsoft Corporation title you wish to purchase
  4. Complete the steps for payment and/or delivery options

For help with the download, installation, or problems with the online store, refer to the Help section at the top right of the online store.


Home Use Program

University employees are also eligible to participate in Microsoft's Software Assurance Home Use Program (HUP). This program enables you to purchase a licensed copy of most Microsoft® Office desktop PC applications to install and use on your home computer.  Under the Home Use Program, you and our other employees may purchase a licensed copy of the Home Use Program software (e.g. Office Enterprise) to install and use on a home computer.  You may continue using HUP software while you are under the University's employment and as long as the corresponding software you use at work has active Software Assurance coverage.
