Educational software applications could be purchased from various sources.  For your convenience, the IT department has leveraged our Volume Licensing subscriptions to provide you discounts.  Because of the College’s Software Assurance benefits restrictions, the discounted software license will remain active, only if the student is currently registered with COM or if the staff is still employed. Alumni and retirees are NOT eligible under most programs.
