Purdue's agreement with QSR International provides 1-year limited term licenses for NVivo Pro for both Academic and Administrative use.  This means that your use of NVivo will only be licensed during the 12-month term of Purdue's agreement for NVivo Pro.  Renewal of Purdue's agreement with QSR International at the end of this term is dependent on sponsor approval and funding.  Upon the yearly renewal of this agreement, requests for an additional year of NVivo Pro use will be accepted.  See the Renewal section below for details.


NVivo is now available to eligible users for immediate download through ITaP Software Distribution on Purdue's CommunityHub in the Statistical Software section.

A registration form is no longer required.
