Microsoft Select Plus is a perpetual license program that simplifies budgeting and allows you to purchase only as many licenses as you need. Instead of having to renew software licenses, Select Plus allows you to purchase under a single licensing agreement without any specific end date.

Select Plus is flexible. You can purchase software for any level of your institution (i.e. by department, by school, etc.) while maintaining the benefits of high volume purchasing.

You can access new product versions with an optional Microsoft Software Assurance benefit that can be purchased with a Select Plus license. Software Assurance provides software upgrade rights for a defined period of time. New Version Rights can be renewed for any Select Plus license after the initial purchase so that you can continue to receive those benefits.

Software Assurance also provides several other benefits, including online training tools and security support.
