Microsoft Select Purchases

Microsoft Select Program

Information Technology Services (ITS) at East Tennessee State University acquired an agreement with En Pointe Technologies to purchase Microsoft software licenses at a significantly reduced cost.

The Microsoft Select program includes products not covered by our Microsoft campus agreement. Products covered by the campus agreement are:

  • Microsoft Windows upgrades, with restrictions
  • Microsoft Office Enterprise, OneNote and Groove
  • Microsoft Expression Web (coming late summer 2007)
  • Microsoft Visual Studio Professional
  • Microsoft Core Client Access License

The three product types covered by the Microsoft Select program are

  • Applications
  • Servers
  • Systems

Although Office® and related products are applications, these products are available at no charge through the campus agreement, applications with a more specific audience, such as Visio or Project, as well as server- and systems-related programs, are available through the Microsoft Select program.

The ETSU Microsoft Select program includes

  • Microsoft software licenses for university use on ETSU owned machines
  • Installation assistance from ITS
