Microsoft Volume Licensing

Microsoft® Volume Licensing offers tailored programs for academic institutions and third-party partners that provide flexible, affordable licensing solutions. Academic institutions can benefit from programs designed especially to put Microsoft software in the hands of educators and students. Third-party vendors have two options for providing Microsoft-licensed products directly to their customers, either through a software services approach, or by integrating Microsoft-licensed products into their own commercially available products.
