It is Buffalo State College policy to maintain compliance with software licensing agreements, and to prohibit the installation of unlicensed software on campus-owned computers. Only Computing and Technology Services staff (Installations and Lab Teams) may install software for which a license was purchased by the college specifically for the computer on which the software is to be installed. Please be aware that any previously installed software for which an appropriate license cannot be verified is subject to removal.
