What is Microsoft Imagine and am I eligible to use it?

Please Note: To adhere to Microsoft Imagine licensing, changes concerning the MS Imagine accounts have occurred.

Microsoft Imagine is a perk that is available to current employees and students each semester who are enrolled in qualifying programs.

Effective September 7, 2016, the DreamSpark program became Microsoft Imagine. This includes a new program name, logo, and visual identity for your ELMS WebStore.

Currently, MS Imagine accounts for eligible Faculty will be loaded within 5 business days before the start of the semester. An initial student load will occur on the first day of the semester, followed by an update at 14th day. Accounts will expire at the end of each semester.

Faculty and students currently enrolled in or teaching an IST or EET course will have MS Imagine Premium access.

Please see the Microsoft Imagine End User License Agreement - Premium:


All other students/employees currently enrolled in qualifying courses other than IST and EET will have MS Imagine Standard access. (Qualifying classes: ACC, BUS, MTH, CAD, CIV, MET, QCT, PHY, CAM, CHM, BIO, AIM, SKT, AUT, CAT, DSL, OAD).
