Union Gap Staff and Students are eligible for Microsoft's Software Assurance Home Use Program (HUP). This program enables you to acquire a licensed copy of Microsoft Office applications to install and use on your home computer for a small fee.

Under the Home Use Program, employees/students who use qualifying applications at work (e.g. Office 2019 for PC or Mac) may acquire a licensed copy of the corresponding Home Use Program software (e.g. Office 2019 for PC or Mac) to install and use on a home computer. You may continue using HUP software while you are employed/enrolled in the District and as long as the corresponding software you use at work has active Software Assurance coverage.
