- I can I obtain access to SPSS/PASW for the Mac?
- I am a graduate student. Do I qualify for faculty/staff downloads?
- I am a retiree. Do I qualify for faculty/staff downloads?
- I am an emeritus professor. Do I qualify for faculty/staff downloads?
- I am on payroll, but I still cannot access faculty/staff downloads.
- What use cases are covered by the Microsoft Office license?
There is a very limited number of SPSS/PASW licenses for the Mac. If you are faculty/staff, you may download SPSS/PASW for Windows. If you specifically require a Mac license, speak with the LAN administrator for your department. If you still need help, email email@example.com. Please be aware that SPSS/PASW licenses are perpetual and will only be installed on continuous use workstations (such as labs) or long-term faculty/staff. If you require SPSS/PASW in the short-term, you may purchase a 6- or 12-month license for as little as $40. Short-term licenses are available to students, faculty, or staff.
Being a graduate student does not necessarily grant you access to faculty/staff downloads. If you are on payroll (e.g., you're a TA), then you will have access to faculty/staff downloads in most cases.
No. Retired faculty or staff are not licensed for faculty/staff downloads. There is one exception for emeritus professors.
Yes. However, if you require access you must request it by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are being paid out of a research grant, you are not licensed for faculty/staff software. If you have just started a position, it may take time for HR to process your role change. You can check your current role and status online by logging in to the SFU computing account directory and searching for your SFU computing ID. Under the "person" tab you will find your role(s). If neither "faculty" or "staff" appears, something is amiss. Contact your department regarding the issue.
You may install Microsoft Office onto any computer owned by the university. You may install Microsoft Office on to any faculty/staff* personal computer (including a computer at home) as long as the user agrees to the work at home license . Please be aware, you are only licensed to use Microsoft Office for SFU-related work only.
*People paid out of research grants are NOT considered official SFU employees
