ACTEM is an Authorized Education Partner (AEP) for Microsoft software
Our AER Select Plus Agreement allows ACTEM to sell licenses and media to educational/non-profit institutions. Districts must be registered under our Select Plus agreement to purchase Microsoft licensing through ACTEM.
Microsoft Select Plus Licensing
Microsoft Select Plus is a perpetual licensing agreement for government and academic organizations. Select Plus works best for organizations that want to license Microsoft on-premises with no annual cost committment. Software Assurance (upgrade rights) is optional and cloud services are not available.
You simply use the software until it no longers works with current operating systems and then purchase newer versions at our low educational pricing when you need to upgrade.

If you are interested in purchasing Microsoft Office or other software as an individual for your personal computer, go to the Microsoft Student Store. ACTEM is only able to offer software to schools and districts registered under our Select Plus agreement.
