About Microsoft Imagine
Microsoft Imagine for Academic Institutions is a software licensing program for schools and colleges that teach and utilize technology. USC Viterbi School of Engineering is now a participant in Microsoft Imagine program. Through Imagine, eligible USC students, faculty and staff have access to numerous Microsoft software developer and design tools, operating systems, previous versions of Office and other products, at no cost, subject to the terms of the program. It also allows eligible individuals to install these tools on their personal computers.
A partial list of available software includes:
The current agreement is valid through June 30, 2019. It is not guaranteed that the agreement will be renewed after that date.
Software is provided for instructional and non-commercial research use only. Students may continue to use these products for non-commercial purposes, even after they graduate. As a consequence, Microsoft Imagine does not provide Microsoft Office at this time. Free copy of Microsoft Office is available to current USC faculty, staff, and students at http://software.usc.edu.
Software is accessed through a dedicated website run by Kivuto Solutions Inc. Access is given to students, faculty and staff who meet certain requirements. Eligible individuals will sign in using USCNetID login credentials.
Who is eligible?
In order to meet licensing requirements and not risk loss of access for all eligible users, access for anyone who no longer meets the criteria described above will be disabled at each semester switch.
Students, faculty, and staff who leave the Viterbi School are able to continue to use software from this license that was installed on their machines prior to their departure.

The Viterbi School does not provide technical support for products obtained through Microsoft Imagine program. The Viterbi School does not troubleshoot or support problems with software installations, errors while using the software, or development with the software.
