When you acquire licenses through the Academic Select program, you can enroll those licenses in Software Assurance. Software assurance helps you get the most from your software by providing the right to run any new release of a covered product during the term of the agreement (free upgrades). You also have access to eLearning content for your covered products. more

Software Assurance is a Microsoft 'Subscription' that allows you to get free upgrades to the next software version without having to buy another license. As of July 2002, Microsoft has stopped selling upgrade versions of software in their volume licensing plans. If you purchased bulk copies of Office 2003 and then Office 2007 became available, without Software Assurance you must buy another license to be able to use the new version, upgrades do not exist anymore.

Software Assurance is an annual subscription plan to help our customers keep current with new product releases. It also provides with auto-updates for all new rules that we publish while your subscription is active. When we release a new version of our products, customers with a current maintenance subscription can receive the upgrade at no additional charge. Customers without maintenance can purchase the new release by paying an upgrade fee which is still considerably lower than the full price. Software Assurance is the most cost effective and convenient way to stay current with the latest versions of our products. more
