Why did UNH IT purchase the Apple Education Licensing Program?

The Mac Software Collection (aka Enrolled Software) bundle includes the applications typically purchased by faculty and staff when purchasing a Mac computer. By purchasing the AELP, significant savings are realized for the University at large due to the discounted volume pricing.

Additionally, the new AELP makes it easier to keep UNH's Apple software current and compliant. Coverage is purchased annually, keeping costs consistent year after year, and the new bundle structure allows UNH to manage against a single expiration date. Each license renewal provides one year of coverage, including any new releases that become available during the year. When UNH receives updated versions of Mac Software Collection products, these new versions will be made available.

The Mac Software Collection software is not to be made available to any computer that has not been purchased by UNH, even if the computer is used for work purposes.
