As part of the Web Central Services Retirement project, the ITS website will be retired. Information about IT services will be replaced by two new sites, IT@UT and UT ServiceNow, and ITS departmental information will be migrated to a new location. All changes will be completed by 7/28/2016.

Software Distribution and Sales

Why do students have to provide SDS with proof of enrollment?

Many of the software licensing agreements in place between the University and software vendors have provisions that are specific to our students. Before we can sell products to students, we must be able to verify that they are currently enrolled in matriculating coursework. Student software orders will not be processed until we have verified enrollment status.

Students at The University of Texas at Austin

Students at UT Austin may be required to provide their UT EID and/or their student ID card or other photo ID for identification purposes.

Students at other UT System schools

Because the student records systems at UT System schools are not available to staff at the UT Austin campus, students must provide us with proof of enrollment. Such proof:

  • Must show that you are enrolled in classes for the current semester and have paid at least some of your tuition and fees. An example of this would be your University fee receipt.

  • It may be either an official document mailed to you by the University or a printout of a Web page. Just copying the text of a Web page into a Word or other text document is not sufficient.

  • It may be either a hard copy on paper, or a scanned copy sent as an e-mail attachment.

You have three options for sending us your proof of enrollment. If you have been provided with an Order Number or an Agreement Number, please reference this number when sending us your proof of enrollment.

  • Scanned documents can be sent as an e-mail attachment to

  • Printed documents can be faxed to (512) 475-9233, Attention: SDS.

  • Printed documents can be sent by US Mail to:

Students outside of the UT System

Because the University of Texas pursues licensing agreements using student fees and state funds, none of our programs are made available to students outside of the UT System. Students at other schools should check with their campus Information Technology groups to see if similar product offerings are available to them.
