Software Licensing and Procurement
Information Technology centrally maintains the licensing for California
Western software applications. If you or your department have a need for
software that is not on your workstation, or is not currently owned or licensed
to CWSL, please send a request to Help Desk. This request should come from
a department head or supervisor. Departments should not purchase software
or install software without first consulting IT.
Faculty/Staff Workstation Software
Information Technology creates and maintains a Windows
workstation image that has the software applications used by faculty and staff.
This standard image includes the basic MS Office suite applications (Outlook,
Word, Excel, PowerPoint) as well as various other applications commonly used by
faculty and staff.
If a software application is needed that is not already
installed on your office workstation, please have your department head or
supervisor send a request to the Help Desk.
Due to software licensing rules, most CWSL academic-licensed software cannot be
installed on computers not owned by CWSL. This includes the Microsoft
Office suite. However, CWSL employees can purchase MS Office and
other software at a significant discount. For more information, please visit
the academic software FAQ
here. Please note that you (and not the Help Desk) are responsible for
purchasing and installing software on your personally-owned laptop or computer,
even if you use it for work.
