Other Software

I'm interested in software, but I don't see it in the Software Catalog. What should I do?

Students may purchase academic versions of many products through the University Supply Store or at the manufacturer's website, and students may also check with their academic department to see if they have additional software available.

Any software not listed in the Software Catalog must be purchased by the department or individual through normal procurement channels. Many departments enter into software licensing agreements separately because the need for the software is limited. Check with your academic or administrative department to determine if there is additional software available to you.

Departments should request quotes from one of the approved vendors from which UA maintains standing contracts.

Departments interested in new campus-wide or larger volume licensing agreements should contact the IT Service Desk to express interest. OIT will work with campus units to evaluate and pursue these agreements.
