Adobe Software  
   USD enjoys a Volume Discount on all Adobe products, but some cost will be incurred by your department. Our rates as negotiated with Adobe are significantly less than other educational outlets, and we can negotiate even better rates by ordering in bulk, so we encourage you to order Adobe products through our office. Please obtain your budget officer's approval before ordering any SPSS products.
SPSS  
   USD enjoys a Volume Discount on all SPSS products, but some cost may be incurred by your department, depending on the type of use of the product. The agreement applies only to university issued computers, which prevents us from being able to install it on personal laptops. There are three (3) types of licenses available for SPSS users:
  • Academic / In-Classroom Use: Used strictly for teaching purposes in a classroom.
  • Academic / Research Use: Primary use of the product for academic research projects.
  • Non-Academic / Business Use: Includes any uses not covered above.
For help in determining your use type, please contact the software desk at software@sandiego.edu. Please obtain your budget officer's approval before ordering any SPSS products.
