Obtaining a License

A license fee of $120 per computer, per fiscal year (July 1st - June 30th) is required.  There will be a renewal each March and a new key must be issued for each computer at that time.  If the license for that computer was purchased in the current fiscal year then the renewal will be free. If not, a renewal fee of $120 will be charged.  Notification will be sent via e-mail when fees are due. Maintaining your license in good standing is necessary to access software upgrades and support. This annual license fee exists to cover the license fees that are due to SPSS as well as covering re-installations in the event that you receive a new computer or if you encounter hard drive failure.

Re-Installing SPSS

You may need a re-install from time to time for previously purchased licenses. You will not have to pay twice for this one license. If you get a new computer or have the need to re-install the software, you can enter a work order to helpdesk@lsu.edu and you will be given a new authorization code to perform the re-installation. You may want to request the new authorization code before you re-image if the situation lends itself to that sort of planning. Of course, we know that emergencies will come up and we will try to expedite your request as needed. This type of re-install process is necessary due to the licensing structure associated with this product. There are no additional charges for re-installs.
