As employees, we are fortunate to have the option to purchase a copy of the Microsoft Office Suite (Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Outlook, etc.) for personal use. Both Mac & Windows versions are available to us. More information about the program can be found at the Microsoft site:
To enroll in the Software Assurance Home Use Program (HUP) for university employees, log into MyServices (myservices.missouri.edu) for instructions. Under HUP, you may purchase Microsoft titles that are volume-licensed by the university, like Microsoft Office Professional. A digital download is just $9.95. You may also purchase a backup disc (includes packaging, shipping, and handling) for an additional $12.95. The license is valid as long as you are a university employee.
