TXShop: How do I purchase a new license in TXShop?

To purchase a NEW license from SDS, simply browse the software and hardware available through ITS. If a product is available through TXShop, you will find a link to TXShop on the Purchasing page for that product.

PLEASE READ the product pages before attempting to purchase software licensing. There, you will find detailed information about eligibility, system requirements, licensing details, and pricing. Specifically, you should find answers to the following questions:

  1. Am I eligible to purchase this product?

    Some products are restricted and can only be purchased by students or departments, while others are open to everybody. Students at UT System schools must provide proof of enrollment before their orders can be completed.

  2. Will I be purchasing a permanent license, or will the license have to be renewed each year?

    Most licenses are actually annual license leases that are valid from September 1 through August 31 of the following year. If you do not renew the annual license lease each year, you must immediately cease using the software. Please note, license fees for a fiscal year are not prorated, regardless of when in the year you purchase.
