License Term

License Codes
When the license is renewed each year, the vendor sends Tufts a new set of license codes (called ‘setinits’) which are required to keep the software from expiring. The license codes are forwarded to campus software coordinators, who in turn will assist to renew the software.

Tufts’ volume license agreement is for the Windows platform.
