  • To request a license, submit a Request Software and Application Distribution Request form specifying SPSS. An invoice will be issued upon receipt of the completed request form. Within seven days of receipt of payment (KSU Interfund Voucher or KSU Foundation check), the licensee will receive an email with instructions on how to access the software via a mapped network drive.
  • K-State renews the SPSS site license annually. Each year in November, the Division of Information Technology will send departments a renewal invoice. Upon receipt of the payment, the licensee will be sent a license-extension password. The important dates are as follows:
