Microsoft Home Use Program (HUP)

Microsoft Home Use Program

District employees are eligible to participate in Microsoft's Software Assurance Home Use Program (HUP.)

This program enables you to get a licensed copy of most Microsoft® Office desktop PC applications to install and use on your home computer.

Under the Home Use Program, you and our other employees who are users of qualifying applications at work (e.g. Office 365) may acquire a licensed copy of the corresponding Home Use Program software (e.g. Office 365) to install and use on a home computer. You may continue using HUP software while you are under our employment and as long as the corresponding software you use at work has active Software Assurance coverage.

To acquire your copy of Office 365, log in to your HLPUSD account (at the Office 365 Portal.) After logging in, click on the "Install Office apps" button in the upper right hand corner and follow the directions for installing the software onto your computer.
