Affordable Software for Students

Affordable Software for Students

   Does your major require you to utilize expensive computer software? Do you need Photoshop or video editing software to fulfill your educational ambitions? Luckily, as a student at Purdue North Central, you actually have the resources to attain all sorts of different programs at a reduced price.
     By using your login information, any PNC student may purchase software for individual use from the “On The Hub” online store. For an additional fee, the software you buy through the Purdue Web Store can be shipped to you on CD/DVD disc, or if you prefer, can simply download it directly to your computer. Links to “On the Hub” as well as “PNC Lab Geek” (which provides updates about the technology labs at PNC) can be found on the Information Services website (www.pnc.edu/is).
     While programmers and engineers need this software for their degree, those in other fields may find it useful as well. “Unfortunately,” said Jason Inman, Director, IT User Experience for 14 years, “the software available to PNC students is not marketed well enough.” With student budgets as tight as they are, Jason decided it was important to get the word out about these great deals on computer software.
     These are just a few of many programs available on “On The Hub”:

  • SPSS
  • Minitab
  • Parallels
  • SAS
  • Google Apps

     Currently, Purdue is deliberating with Microsoft about Office 365 ProPlus. The hope is to have this software become free of charge to students through the Microsoft Student Advantage program. No final decisions have been made as of yet, however, they should know by early June. To keep updated on this and other related subjects, make sure to follow the Information Services website or check the Purdue University North Central Information Services Facebook page.

     If you have further software related questions you can create a ticket by logging into the PNC Services website (services.pnc.edu).
