ABOUT THE MICROSOFT® & APPLE® AGREEMENTS.
The Microsoft® Campus Agreement (MCA) and it's Apple® Agreement counterpart
are the product of strategic negotiations between the UA Office of the CIO and
these prominent software vendors. These agreements provide incredible
cost-savings benefits to the UA student population as well as UA staff and
departments with the procurement of dramatically discounted software licenses
for products that we use every day. The MCA provides a cost-effective solution
for supplying working professionals and departments within the University of
Arizona with daily use software at no cost or as a dramatically reduced cost.
The agreements are funded by the Office of the CIO and managed by the UA
BookStores Licensing Office. Computers that are owned or leased by The
University of Arizona are covered by the Campus License Agreements for the
duration of the contract. The MCA and Apple® Agreement is effective June 30,
Microsoft Tutorials. University of Arizona faculty and staff
are encouraged to take advantage of Microsoft E-Learning courses through the
duration of the Microsoft Campus Agreement. E-Learning sessions provide access
to self-paced, interactive training developed by Microsoft experts, and are
designed to improve user proficiency, boost staff productivity, and lower
organizational training costs.
