However, additional opt-in components are available for UA departments to purchase for their faculty and staff. These license(s) are available upon request, and the annual cost is charged to the requesting department. The license(s) will be automatically renewed at the requesting departments expense, unless IT Services receives a notice in advanced to cancel the renewal. Licenses are issued on a named person basis (i.e. one license per person). For more information, please review the Office 365 Optional Software Licenses knowledge article.
