Buying Software: a Guide for College Students, Faculty, & Staff

St. Norbert College students, faculty, and staff may wish to purchase or acquire copies of various software programs for use on their personal computers.

Microsoft Office

Good News! Students and employees can now purchase Microsoft Office for only $20! For College employees who use Microsoft Office on their College-owned office computers, this is a "Work at Home” license, which permits College-related use only. This program is administered by an external vendor called JourneyEd. For details and links, see the vendor's web site:

JourneyEd says that after you complete the order on their web site, you will be required to fax or e-mail a copy of your academic verification. They will send you an e-mail message with instructions for submitting your academic verification. Once verification is completed and depending on how you place your order, you will receive either a license code, a link to download the software, or a physical DVD set mailed to you. Delivery of the software download instructions are generally completed same day while shipment of the physical DVD takes 3-5 business days.

If you have questions or need assistance with this process, contact JourneyEd Customer Service at 1-800-874-9001 or use their web form.

If you need a copy of Office that does not qualify for the above program, see the links below to other software vendors.

Anti-virus/anti-spyware software

While no program offers complete anti-virus/anti-spyware protection, we recommend using the free Microsoft Security Essentials (required for student computers on the SNC network). Download Microsoft Security Essentials
