The University of Delaware licenses a limited number of  copies of SPSS for microcomputers.

Other modules may be available in very limited quantities for an additional fee. The last version of SPSS released for other platforms is version 6.1.

This document describes the procedures for obtaining a copy, the conditions of use, and the installation procedure for microcomputers owned by faculty, full-time staff or the University. Installation requires special license codes which expire annually. Initial and annual renewal license codes will be sent to registered faculty and staff who use the on-line registration forms below.

How much will the software cost me?

The charge for each license is approximately $25/year/computer. This covers three modules: SPSS/Base, Regression Models, and Advanced Models. (Students wanting a copy for their own microcomputers should purchase the SPSS Graduate Pack. The cost is approximately $200 for the three modules. It is available from JourneyEd.
