Software for Students

Now available: Microsoft DreamSpark - Professional Developer and Designer software tools for students.

  • Please note an International Student Identity Card (ISIC) is required.
  • The Registrar's office provides a form associated with the ISIC application to be completed at no cost, verifying the student is a registered full-time UW student. This form is available in the Registrar Office, but not online.
  • An ISIC card costs under $20.00 and is available at Travel Cuts (one is located at the University Plaza) or can be processed through the mail.

Some companies allow us to include students in our special license arrangements for software.
