Home Use Program

Microsoft Home Use Program

The Home Use Program (HUP) is part of a new offering from Microsoft. If you are a JSA employee who takes work home with you, then you are eligible to participate in the HUP. This program enables you to get a licensed copy of Microsoft Office to install on your home computer so you may work from home.

As a licensed user under JSA, with active Software Assurance (SA), you are eligible to order a single copy of a product you use at work to install on your home machine so you may work from home. This product must only be installed on one machine; not multiple machines. You may only continue using the HUP software while you are under JSA employment. Additionaly, the software you use at work must remain under SA coverage for HUP to apply.

If your use of Microsoft Office does not fall under the above description, you must purchase Office and other Microsoft products through conventional retail outlets. Note that the "Employee Purchase Program" which offered discount prices to lab employees was discontinued by Microsoft in 2010.

Please note that some product and language versions may not be available at the time you place an order. For up-to-date information on the availability of Home Use Program software, please visit http://microsoft.com/licensing.
