However, for a limited time they will continue to offer the opportunity for eligible employees to purchase the following products at www.microsofthup.com:

  • From 11/1/2018 to 6/30/2019 – Office Professional Plus 2019, Office Home and Business 2019, Visio Professional 2019, and Project Professional 2019 for USD $14.99* each.
  • Starting 7/1/2019 – Office Professional Plus 2019 and Office Home and Business 2019 will no longer be available. Project Professional 2019 and Visio Professional 2019 will continue to be offered to eligible customers.

NOVA faculty and staff are now eligible to participate in Microsoft's Software Assurance Home Use Program (HUP). This program enables you to get a licensed copy of most Microsoft® Office desktop PC applications to install and use on your home computer. Both Windows and Mac versions are available.

Under the Home Use Program, employees who are users of qualifying applications at work (ex. Office Enterprise) may acquire a licensed copy of the corresponding Home Use Program software (ex. Office Enterprise) to install and use on a home computer. You may continue using HUP software while you are a NOVA employee as long as the corresponding software you use at work has active Software Assurance coverage.

You are only entitled to one copy under the home use program.

Please Note: Some product and language versions may not be available at the time you place an order. For up-to-date information on the availability of Home Use Program software, please visit https://www.microsofthup.com/hupus/faq.aspx?culture=en-US.
