Texas A&M Software Alliance

The Texas A&M Software Alliance gives students free access to specialized software to better prepare them for a successful career. Most software is used by engineering, medical, veterinary, physics and science students.


Faculty/Staff Software for Personal Use

Texas A&M has negotiated license agreements with software vendors that allow faculty and staff to buy some products at reduced prices for personal use ("work-at-home rights").

Microsoft Work-At-Home Rights

Texas A&M's license agreement with Microsoft extends rights to use software on personally owned computers. If a department, college or campus opts in to these licenses, eligible employees can purchase software at considerable discounts for home use at software.tamu.edu. Read more at "Who is eligible to purchase discounted software for personal use?" at the Microsoft Departmental FAQ.

Other Work-At-Home Rights

Other license agreements have work-at-home rights for all Texas A&M faculty and staff. Departments do not need to opt in to these licenses for their employees to be eligible. Purchase Endnote, McAfee and other products for personal use at software.tamu.edu. Visit individual software pages for more information.
