How can I get education discounts on computers or software?
Apple and Lenovo have made direct employee purchasing possible at the same education prices. We recommend that you purchase directly from Apple or Lenovo, unless you want to take advantage of the school's 5% loan for home computer purchases. Some of these companies also offer discount programs to students.
Lenovo - Education: Look under "Education Employee Purchase Program"
Apple Store for Education: Look under "Personal Purchases"
Microsoft: "How educators can save on Microsoft software"
Adobe Education Store (we are a qualifying institution)
Sometimes, the school's license allows you to install the software at home without any additional purchase! See the following blurb for more information: The 80/20 rule or "work at home" rights. Browse the OETC catalog to see whether the product you want is eligible for "work at home" rights.
