Important information for SPSS users


Contributed by Irene Scott

ITS will soon be upgrading the college’s academic network SPSS license to version 21, and will send out renewal messages to all SPSS users by late May - early June.  

IBM/SPSS requires that all network license users be at one version.  To that end, ITS plans to make SPSS 21 available in June.  (Chargebacks will be processed after June 1.)  Users can begin submitting their renewal forms in late May, and upgrade installs will take place over the summer months.

Departments will have until October 1 to renew their network license subscriptions. After October 1st, version 20 will no longer be available.

The networked license cost is much less then what an individual can purchase, and has some constraints associated with it.  More information, including license terms, can be found on our SPSS website:
