Microsoft Licensing

Use the current version of Windows and/or Office on all organization-owned equipment. K-12, higher education and library members are eligible for this discount. Members that currently have EES licenses may retain those licenses until 2020. Members that wish to purchase new licenses will need to purchase M365. Members that license M365 for all of their knowledge worker count can receive Office 365 for their students.

Note: Some members with current EES licenses have been unable to renew those licenses and have needed to purchase M365 licenses instead.

Microsoft 365 Licensing

Members that do not currently have EES licensing must purchase Microsoft 365 licenses. Pricing for M365 is calculated differently than EES licenses and includes several additional products for educators. You can find more information about features and pricing in this presentation.

Pricing for desktop platform products is tiered and depends on the number of knowledge workers within your organization. Microsoft defines a knowledge worker as "[a]ny employee, contractor, or volunteer who uses a product or qualified device for the benefit of the institution or within the user's relationship with the Institution."

Each knowledge worker counts for purposes of M365 pricing.

Additional desktop applications, CALs, Online Services, and Server products are priced individually. For pricing, please contact


K-12, higher education and library MOREnet members are eligible for this program.Government and health care institutions are not eligible. Some Microsoft program restrictions do apply. Members that are eligible to receive Office 365 for students at no charge will need to provide student counts.
