Under the program, you may purchase Microsoft products such as Office, Visio and Project for installation on your personal Windows or Mac computer. Microsoft will provide a link by email to download the software. You can opt to receive the software on DVD or USB drive for additional cost. Software must be purchased using personal funds and is considered your personal property as long as you remain employed by UW.
