Purchase College works closely with several leading technology partners to provide the campus with the latest technology at affordable prices. Hewlett Packard and Apple provide the campus with workstations while operating systems, anti-virus, and office applications are provided by Microsoft under a Campus Agreement.
Adobe and Microsoft Campus Agreement for Software- Students, Faculty, and Staff
Purchase College maintains a Campus Agreement with Microsoft that entitles the College to use certain Microsoft products across the campus on institutionally owned computers. The Campus Agreement is a license subscription service purchased annually for certain Microsoft software used by faculty and staff across campus on institutionally owned computers. Under the agreement the College can install Microsoft Office and upgrade Windows operating system. These applications come pre-installed on any new computers setup and delivered by the CTS Helpdesk and can be installed onto any College owned computers by request.
The College also has an agreement with Logisoft to not only provide Adobe and Microsoft products for institutional purchases, but also for personal purchases by students, faculty, or staff. Please visit their website at www.deals4edu.com.
E-Academy also provides software at a discount for students, faculty, or staff. The link is located on the Downloads page. See below for information about faculty/staff work at home software.
For Institutional Purchases
Special pricing for institutional purchase of computers is accessible through Hewlett Packard's or Apple's websites for the New York State Aggregate Buy Contract. Please contact CTS at (914) 251-6465 for more information.
Discounts on HP Personal Purchases for Faculty and Staff:
Once you go to the site, www.hpdirect.com/employee/purchasecollege, you just need to create an account. I believe you have to use your Purchase email for the email address (the .edu address tells them you work for the College, and are eligible for the discount) but the password does not have to be the same as your email password.
If you are using the online checkout, use company code: EP17422. HP Customer service phone number is 888-999-4747.
Discounts on Apple Personal Purchases for Faculty and Staff:
Faculty/Staff and Students can all receive a education discount on their Apple hardware purchases. The discount is not a certain percentage, but different dollar amounts based on the system. So the discount scan range from $20-$100 or more.

Home Computer License Rights for Faculty and Staff
Under this agreement, College employees are entitled to install this same software onto their personally owned computers at home provided they use this software in the performance of their job. The software can be installed from special installation media obtained from the College’s vendors, e-Academy and Logisoft. The cost of the license for this software is already covered under the Campus Agreement and a nominal fee will be charged by the vendor to cover the cost of supplying the media.
Please visit the Microsoft Support page for information regarding these software titles and their minimum system requirements.
Obtaining Installation Media for Your Home Computer
Faculty and staff can purchase media under the Campus Agreement for home computer use by visiting the website for e-Academy. The link can be found on the Downloads page. The media is available in either download or DVD format.
Note: This software is made available to you because Purchase College has purchased license coverage for the software through its Microsoft Campus Agreement. Purchase College is offering the right for you to use the software for business related purposes at home under its Microsoft Campus Subscription Enrollment. You are not licensed to use the software at home for personal purposes. You do not own the license or the CDs, rather you are authorized to use the software and associated media pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Microsoft Campus Agreement during the licensed period. You will be required to remove the software from your home machine immediately upon expiration of the licensed period or earlier if your employment by Purchase College ends.
