Microsoft Imagine Premium
The Harper College Computer Information Systems Department is a member of Microsoft Imagine Premium. Our membership enables the department to outfit our computers with the latest Microsoft development tools, operating systems, server software, documentation, and technical references. In addition, students, faculty, and staff in the department have complete access to these tools and references for use on their own personal computers.
Current students in CAS, CIS, and NET courses will automatically receive an invitation to Microsoft Imagine Premium in their Harper College student email shortly after the semester begins. Students can then visit the Microsoft Imagine Institution Subscriptions web site to access the web store. Software and licenses are only available to students who are currently enrolled in active courses.
