The Microsoft Home Use Program is still available. The name of the program has changed to the Microsoft Workplace Discount Program. Any previously purchased discounted products are not affected by the change in the program name. You'll continue to receive discounted rates on qualified subscriptions, provided you keep auto-renewal turned on.
To update and modernize the Workplace Discount Program to a broader range of license and product benefits, we changed the way we fulfill the program. Microsoft Store for Business is used for eligibility validation and to assign the benefits, and relies on AAD to connect information from VLSC and to validate the email domains your organization's employees are on. For more information, see Sign up for Microsoft Store for Business or Microsoft Store for Education. Alternatively, you can use the Benefits tab on the Your products page of the Microsoft 365 admin center to manage the program benefits.
Use the resources located on the Workplace Discount Program home page to help you promote the program to your employees. You'll find digital and printable flyers, verbiage for use in emails and newsletters, and guidance on how to best promote the Workplace Discount Program.
Microsoft's popular HUP is aimed at businesses who use Office at work. It allows employees to claim a discount on versions of the office suite for use at home. Until now, that included the option to purchase a perpetual license for Office 2019 ($89.99 at Mr Key Shop)(Opens in a new window) , meaning paying once and using Office for as long as you like. But as Computerworld reports(Opens in a new window), that option is now no longer available.
Subscriptions to Office 365 were introduced to HUP earlier this year with a 30 percent discount alongside one-time license purchasing, but at the same time Microsoft stated perpetual licenses were going to disappear in the near future. Visiting the HUP homepage today confirms the focus is now squarely on Office 365.
Microsoft quietly has made a change to its Home Use Program (HUP) for its Software Assurance business customers. As some had expected when the company began revamping the HUP benefit earlier this year, Microsoft is dropping the ability to buy the non-subscription version of Office for a steeply discounted price. Microsoft instead is offering HUP customers the ability to buy Office 365 Home or Personal at a discount for home use.
As the Licensing School UK noted in a recent post, "You can still buy HUP licenses for Project and Visio, but licenses for the Office products to use at home are now covered by Office 365 Home or Personal subscriptions."
You can find details about these programs on our website. If you have questions or need assistance with your Boise State Microsoft Office license, contact the Help Desk at (208) 426-4357 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just and FYI for people who want to retrieve their purchases from the old Home Use Program i.e. $10 to $15 Office Pro Plus 2013/2016/2019 and Office Home & Business 2016/2019 may use this link: -us/home-use-program/order-history?rtc=2
@Spencer: Just an FYI for you and your readers here. The move to Office 365 has a huge problem right now that some have already reported here. The e-mail you get after typing in your *.mil e-mail address in -us/home-use-program has all the links disabled as per DOD policy which stops you cold from being able to purchase the discounted Office products.
I do not think they have a similar program because it is offered under the Microsoft Home Use Program (HUP). I assume this discount is offered because the DOD buys so many Microsoft licenses for Office.
The discount isnt to help the service member, its to help the units. The benefit is for AD because the various branches use MS Office products in day to day activities. To facilitate the proficiency of the AD members in MS Office suite, they came up with this program get more members using it at home. This would in turn improve their usage at work, theoretically. Like many benefits, some are limited to time of service, and more recent veterans/retirees who utilized this benefit before separating should still benefit, but wont be able to acquire any new licenses.
thanks for all the hard work Spencer. does anyone know how to remedy an oversight, I accidentally put in my code for visio and project manager package instead of the Microsoft home and student. I caught myself before purchasing it and went back and applied for the home and student but now the new link also takes me to visio and project manager program. I tried a different code as well and it still gives me a link to purchase visio or project manager. any help will be awesome.
HUP allows business and educational institutions that purchase licensed software from Microsoft to offer that same software to employees at [often times] incredibly low prices. For example, my wife is a teacher, and her school district allows her to purchase Office Professional Plus 2019 for around $15 for use on her computer at home.

No matter which Office version you used, EaseUS Todo PCTrans does well in program transferring speed. You don't need to redownload it again and again. With the help of this PC program mover, finding a license/product key is accessible. Try the best way that suits you the most for MS Office migration between two computers.
Microsoft recently decided that it will no longer sell perpetual licenses for Office Professional Plus 2019 and Office Home and Business 2019 as part of its Home Use Program. The program, which had allowed people to buy deeply discounted copies of Office for use on their personal computers, will be shifting to a subscription-only licensing model.
Now, don't misunderstand me: I'm not recommending that you abandon your Office licenses and switch to OpenOffice. All I am saying is that if Microsoft does eventually switch to a subscription-only licensing model, and you can't justify the ongoing subscription fees, then OpenOffice might be a possible alternative, especially for home users.
Microsoft has changed its Home Use Program (HUP) for its Software Assurance business customers, which removed the benefits of running the same Office on a computer that was previously used by enterprise customers at home (previously users could purchase a non-subscription version of Office at a very low discount).
The US software giant will no longer sell one-off licenses for Office 2019 (opens in new tab) as part of its Home Use Program (HUP) as it tries to encourage customers to opt for an annual subscription instead. HUP is a program which allows employees at eligible companies to buy the same Microsoft products they use at the office for their homes.
Students may download 12-month software licenses at no charge. Students must obtain UCSD affiliation through a UCSD email address. UCSD Extension students are ineligible from participating in the Azure for Students program.
Office 365 subscriptions have allowed many workplaces and higher education providers to offer access to needed Office programs on a variety of devices and through a web browser to their employees and students. Getting the programs set up on your new computer, whether for business or personal use, requires a minimal amount of fuss because the subscription is licensed on a recurring basis via monthly or annual payments.
Many new computers ship to retailers with preinstalled software, including limited-access versions of the Microsoft Office suite. These factory installs feature either a free trial of the software or a license for a one-time installation. If Microsoft Office came preinstalled and licensed on your new computer, you only need to install your version if you prefer it to the newer release of the software set or if your software set contains additional Office programs, such as Access and Publisher.
To connect the existing software, click on the Windows start menu, followed by an Office program, such as Word. Click "Activate" and log in using your Microsoft account username and password. If you do not have an account, visit www.login.live.com to create a new one. After submitting your username and password, you are asked to opt in for mailing lists and to accept license terms before full access to your programs is granted.
If you are an individual, then you can buy licenses for the Office programs that are associated with your Microsoft personal account. You can buy Office 365 Personal for one computer, or Office 365 Home for up to five computers.
One more reason this article is useful, I have been programming small business systems since dbase and my first microsoft password was the passport extension. Over time the changes that developed with little or no thought to clear naming left me in a complete mess. I am also a very small business with no more that 15 employees ever and now down to me and freelancers. There are artifacts of the time i had all the employees in my licensing as well. And i have always used my work computer as my personal as well. With all of this i was beginning to lose my self confidence. How could this have gone on so long? Surely most people must not have trouble with it if it has not changed. Maybe I am over thinking it? How did I wind up with two accounts with the same email anyway? Your article helped me understand its not me, it is them. I swear this reminds me of trying to use off shore programmers. 2b1af7f3a8
