ESRI Student Time-Out Editions

The software registered under the ESRI Site License Agreement with UH is not intended to be installed and operated on student-owned computers. Students have a few options to obtain general ESRI software:

  1. Faculty Request: UH faculty or full time staff members may request 1-year time-out media sets directly from ESRI free of charge on behalf of their student(s). This media set is for qualified student use ONLY and the requestor must agree to provide technical support to their students. Requests may be done through the ESRI Software Promotion website:

    NOTE: If the student needs additional extensions that are not provided in the free media kit, they must purchase individual educational licenses of ArcView and the needed extensions on their own, either as 1-year time out licenses or perpetual licenses. Please call ESRI TeleSales at 1-800-447-9778 for pricing and ordering

  2. Purchase Options: Students may also purchase the ArcView Student License with personal funds. For all pricing information or to place an order, please call ESRI TeleSales at 1-800-447-9778.

  3. Getting to Know ArcGIS Workbook & License: Students may also have access to the 180-day time-out edition of ESRI software for use on their personal computers by purchasing the Getting to Know ArcGIS Desktop book from ESRI PRESS.

    NOTE: Caution should be exercised when purchasing used books as the software may have already exceeded the 180-day license for used books.
