Microsoft Campus License Agreement

Overview


Microsoft licenses Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) services to SPU based on named user licenses as of July 1, 2020.  Compared to prior licensing agreements, this license structure has increased service to most employees and current students, but has required more precise tracking of license allocations and decreased service to alumni and some other populations. Please note that as of February 1, 2024 Microsoft A1 licenses have decreased from 1 TB to 100 GB of OneDrive storage.

License Summary


Faculty & Staff Licenses

Most employees are classified as Knowledge Workers, and are assigned an A5:Employee license.  Employees who use a computer for less than 50% of their job and/or only use Microsoft Office from shared computers will generally be assigned an A1:Employee license.

Student Licenses

Students will retain the A5:Student license up to 1 year after their last registered quarter, after that students will be switched to an Alumni license. Any files stored in OneDrive will become read only at that point and students will not be able to create new files or edit existing files without purchasing their own personal Microsoft license.

Student Employees Licenses

Student Employees count as Students and are assigned A5:Student.
