College users of Microsoft Project or Microsoft Visio

Microsoft is now offering "Software Assurance." Simply put, it is a sort of subscription service for your software that allows you to obtain the latest version of Microsoft products you already use, replacing the need to purchase software upgrades or full version releases for each new version released. 

The Licensing 6.0 Launch Transition Period ends July 31, 2002.

You can cover your existing licenses by July 31 by enrolling the licenses you own for current products in Software Assurance and purchasing Upgrade Advantage for the licenses you own for older program versions (non-current licenses). With Upgrade Advantage, you get the rights to the most current version now, and those licenses will be automatically rolled into Software Assurance.
