NUIT ANNOUNCES MICROSOFT STUDENT SELECT PROGRAM
Northwestern University Information Technology (NUIT) has subscribed to a Microsoft licensing
program that makes selected Microsoft products available to all NU students at significantly
discounted prices. All licensing takes place on the Web and the software kit is shipped directly to
the student via UPS.
The Microsoft products offered are Office XP Professional for Windows, Office XP Standard for
Windows, Windows XP Professional Upgrade, and Office X for Macintosh. Prices range between
$60 and $70 each. Each student is limited to one copy of each product.
To purchase software, students visit a Web site, login using their Northwestern NetID and
password, choose the software they wish to purchase, and pay online using a credit card. Please
note that Kellogg students should consult with Kellogg Information Systems
(email@example.com) about the availability of Microsoft software.
Each product includes one license and media kit. Payment can be made using either MasterCard or
Visa. Every transaction on the site is safeguarded by secure socket layer (SSL) technology, which
fully encrypts all sensitive data including credit card information. This ensures a safe, trouble-free
transaction and protects against credit card fraud.
