    What is Imagine? Imagine (formerly known as DreamSpark) is a Microsoft program that supports technical education by providing access to Microsoft software for learning, teaching, and research purposes.

    Who is eligible? Students currently enrolled in specific CIT courses are eligible to access the Imagine site to download software. Accounts will be disabled at the end of every term and re-enabled at the beginning of the next term as long as the student is taking CIT courses.

    How does it work? At the beginning of each term, ITS staff will create Imagine accounts for each CIT student and faculty. When these accounts are created an email is automatically sent to the student's academic email account. This email contains instructions for registering and accessing their Imagine account.

    What software is available? Microsoft Office is not included in the Imagine program however, there are many operating systems, developer tools, server software, and other applications. Access the Imagine Webstore to view the entire list of available software.

    What is OneDrive?

    OneDrive is an online storage service that you can use to store documents, photos, music, and other types of files. With OneDrive you can access your files from almost any device and you can also share them with others. For more information on OneDrive, visit the Microsoft OneDrive How-to page.

    How long can I use this plan?

    If you are eligible, you can use the plan until you graduate or are no longer enrolled at a qualified school. Student eligibility may be re-verified at any time. At expiration, the Office applications enter a reduced-functionality mode, which means documents can be viewed but it isn’t possible to edit or create new documents. In addition, online services associated with the school email address, for example Office Online and OneDrive, will no longer work.
