Does UA's bookstore have low priced MS Office 2010 for students?

<p>My son has been looking through his textbooks and supplies and saw that there are files he'll need Office 2010 to open. I know that UAB's bookstore (at least a few years ago) offered Office for about $8 to students. Does UA do the same thing? </p>

<p>I thought I'd ask here, because if it doesn't then of course we'll go ahead and get the student discount from Microsoft (which will make the Office about $100).</p>

<p>Office for $8? </p>

<p>I would call the Supe store and ask.</p>

<p>Then also call UAB...if cheaper there, get it there.</p>

<p>Thanks - I can't get it at UAB because they actually want to know which student, and keep a record that that particular student has claimed their copy...because it is so ridiculously cheap. We did it before because my oldest son was a freshman there at the time - so it was for him. It may not even be done at UAB anymore, was just something I was aware of at the time. Thanks.</p>

<p>Seems like a discount exists for FACULTY, but not students. See link...</p>

<p>Sounds like UAB did some kind of huge purchase like my H's company does which allows a certain number of licensed copies to be distributed to employees.</p>

<p>Yes, that was most likely it. Thanks everyone - I'd just wanted to check. We went ahead and bought him Office from Microsoft's online store last night.</p>
