Employee Discounts for Faculty and Staff
Microsoft Work @Home
As part of the Microsoft Campus Agreement, St. John Fisher College employees are eligible to receive Microsoft Office 2013 Pro Plus and Microsoft Windows Upgrades on their home computers for work or school related purposes. The College covers the cost of the license for both Microsoft Office and Microsoft Windows Upgrades; the employee only needs to purchase the media.
We have enlisted our Microsoft software vendor, GovConnection, to administer the Microsoft Work @ Home rights and media distribution. The cost to obtain the software is $9.95 for the licensed download and $14.95 for the physical CD/DVD and can be ordered through the JourneyEd.com website.
After you place the order online, you will be required to fax or email a copy of your SJFC ID to GovConnection. They will send you instructions for sending the verification by email once you have placed the order through their site. Once you have submitted your ID, you will receive either a license code or a link (download) or a physical CD media set.
Personal Technology Purchases
The Office of Information Technology has partnered with GovConnection to allow faculty and staff to purchase technology for personal/home use at a discounted price. You can view and purchase technology through the GovConnection.com website.
Note: Equipment and software purchased through this site is for personal/home use only and should not be used with SJFC equipment.
