Almost all Purdue faculty and staff are eligible to participate in the Microsoft Campus Agreement (MSCA) program, but there are exceptions. The following criteria are used to determine eligibility, based on terms of the MSCA. Faculty and staff who satisfy the requirements in categories number 2 or 3 below may participate in the MSCA program. Registered students are eligible to participate in the Microsoft Student Select Agreement (Select). Note that Fort Wayne (IPFW) and Indianapolis (IUPUI) students, faculty, and staff are covered by a separate agreement between Microsoft and Indiana University.
* Questions about student status should be directed to the Registrar or to your academic advisor (or to the Statewide Technology Location Director at your site).
* Official Purdue University records are used to determine MSCA eligibility. It is possible that your records may be incorrect. If there have been recent changes in your status, these changes may still be in the paperwork pipeline such that University records have not yet been updated. Employees may need to wait a full payroll cycle for this to occur. Student records are usually updated within a week. Please wait at least this long before trying to purchase software media.
* Questions about employment status or position codes should be directed to your business office.
* If you have verified your employee position code, and you still have MSCA eligibility questions, please send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org .
 Purchase of software media by students registered for a subsequent semester is contingent on returning to attend classes that semester. Microsoft Select software is made available in advance so that you can install it on your computer before classes start. If you do not return for classes, your license for the software is void and you must remove the software from any computer on which it has been installed.
