Our campus computer store people let me know a few day ago that Arvato has not delivered on Office 365 student media and are saying Microsoft has not yet authorized it; we had this problem on last Microsoft product release. We are trying to get this run to earth various ways. Anyone else seeing this problem (I know a lot of you do online only and are not affected)? Or perhaps more sensibly asked, has anyone gotten their physical student media

Microsoft will launch Office 2013 and new Office 365 subscription plans today, a move that also starts the countdown clock ticking for the expiration of free previews the company distributed last year. Read More

Maggie, I just double checked and we did get our Windows Student media. Like this time, Arvato (the media maker) was saying Microsoft had not yet authorized it but Microsoft got it straightened out. Now the struggle has moved to Office 2013. I know several are working the issues in Microsoft and in reseller.

If your facstaff and student email addresses use the same domain, then MS won't distinguish between them. You have to be sure to distribute the program code only to facstaff.

You enter the domains to allow on the HUP portal, so if student and facstaff are different you're all set.

At the University of Minnesota our staff and students all have the same domain, so we have the HUP program code behind authentication at the staff/faculty level, meaning that students cannot access the page that has the code on it.  This doesn't prevent with 100% certainty that the code won't get shared, but we state a few times that the code cannot be shared amongst others at the University, with the hope that it won't get into students hands.  So far there is no indication that the code has been used by anyone other than staff and faculty.
