Changes to "Work at Home" Licensing for Microsoft Office

Media Resources will discontinue software checkout July 2007.

JMU’s Campus Agreement with Microsoft Corporation permits faculty and staff to install Microsoft Office on a personally-owned computer. Previously, media for these installations could be obtained through Media Resources in Carrier Library.

Effective 7/1/2007, Microsoft Office media will no longer be available for checkout. This is due to changes in our licensing agreement with Microsoft. Instead, faculty and staff can purchase Work at Home media from the JMU Bookstore for approximately $5-$6.

Work at Home licensing is only available to JMU faculty and staff. If you elect to take advantage of Work at Home licensing, you will be required to sign a document indicating you agree that Office will only be used by you, and only for JMU-related work. If JMU’s Agreement with Microsoft expires, or your employment at JMU ends, you are required to remove the Office software from your personal computer.

Microsoft Office versions available:
Office 2003 for Windows
Office 2007 for Windows
Office 2004 for Macintosh

The JMU Bookstore also sells fully-licensed copies Microsoft Office without Work at Home restrictions for approximately $90.
