About Software Purchases for University-Owned Computers

Software for university-owned computers is available to Wright State faculty and staff through several different methods. Many software titles are offered for free. However, more specialized software may have a fee associated with it. 

CaTS coordinates volume license agreements for numerous software applications. Some are offered to departments at no cost, while others are charged back with a licensing fee. Unless otherwise noted, licensing cost does not cover the cost of any future upgrade or new versions. To request software licensing, see the instructions below. For questions about university software licensing, contact the Help Desk.

Please Note: Software can only be installed on university-owned computers. Software is not for personal/home use.
