Microsoft Home Use Program

For a fraction of the retail price, Microsoft now offers enrollment in the Software Assurance Home Use Program (HUP) to Mona Shores faculty and staff. Under HUP, you may purchase one copy of Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 or Office for Mac 2011 for use on your personally owned computers. The price of $9.95 (plus tax) provides you with a license key and allows you to download a copy of the software. You may also purchase a backup DVD for an additional $12. The license is valid for you as a single user as long as you are a district employee. You are allowed two installs on this license.

All support for the HUP software is provided by Microsoft. Setup and installation support is similar to the support provided to customers who purchase Microsoft programs at a retail store.
