Microsoft Visio for University-Owned Systems

To order Project or Visio:

  1. Email and request a quote. The quote can take from 48 to 72 hours to be generated but, once it is, it will be emailed to you.
  2. After receiving the quote back from SHI, submit a PO in uShop with the quote attached. The vendor is SHI (Somerset, NJ)
    1.  Attach your quote to the requisition and submit it in uShop to SHI (Somerset, NJ).
    2. Be sure to change the Ship To section to SERVICE ONLY.
    3. Code the request as Software Subscriptions.
    4. For an annual subscription, change the unit of measure to year (YR).
    5. For renewing orders, reference your prior PO number as a continued reference for all.
  3. Nicky will email you a confirmation receipt with your order number. This can take from 24 to 48 hours for the order to be processed.
  4. Once the order has processed, you will receive an email confirmation.
  5. Attach the license confirmation to a TAC ticket for software installation and be sure to state who is receiving the license.
  6. ITS will “apply” the license to the correct individual in Office 365 and then that individual will be able to install the software from the O365 portal.
  7. A ticket will be sent to the computer consultants to assist you with getting the software installed.

These new licenses are leases (not purchases) and are co-termed to match the annual campus agreement so the cost, is different each month and everything expires in June. So, regardless of when you order, you will need to re-order each year, in June, to continue to be able to use Project and/or Visio. It's very important that you order/submit your PO the same month you receive your quote and before the quote has expired. If you don't, SHI will have to request a new quote which will delay the order further.
