Microsoft for Departments and Units

Microsoft offers educational pricing on applications including the Office productivity suite and developer and server software through the Microsoft Consolidated Campus Agreement (MCCA).

UC's annual MCCA software lease program is based on the knowledge worker count of the department. The program is effective for departments/units where the number of computers is equal to or greater than the number of knowledge worker count for faculty and staff and the department upgrades Office, Windows, or the Server OS at least once every 3 years.


The annual cost depends on certain UC-wide enrollment levels and may be reduced depending on changes in enrollment levels. Pricing and product changes, if any, take place mid-March.


  1. Figure your department's knowledge worker count using the formula on the MCCA license page section "Calculating Your Knowledge worker."
  2. Contact Campus Software Distribution to enroll or to renew current MCCA enrollment by April 23rd each year for the lease period beginning July 1st.

New enrollment orders may be placed mid-term. Contact
