Software Licensing

When you order software for your department, the type of license you purchase may depend on your needs. This article outlines the different types of software licenses available to PSU. For a complete list of software available to purchase, see the Software Order Form.

Site License

Software that PSU has a site license for can be installed an unlimited number of times (in most cases) on an unlimited number of machines. PSU has site licenses for software such as Microsoft Office, Meeting Maker, and the Cisco VPN Client.

Educational License

Certain software has an educational license available for purchase, meaning that educational institutions get a discount. Most of the software listed on the Software Order Form falls into this category.

User License

Software licenses that fall outside site licenses and educational licenses fall into the broader category of user licenses. User licenses are generally restricted to either a single user or a single computer.
