Windows 10/11 Education for Students

As part of the MSU Microsoft EES agreement, current MSU students can download one copy of Windows 10 or 11 Education to use as long as they are currently enrolled. While ITS provides instructions for accessing the download for Windows 10 or 11 Education, students will need to reach out to OnTheHub support for any further assistance.

When your access to an order expires (typically 31 days after the order is placed), you lose the ability to download software from that order or view any product keys that were issued with it through your WebStore.

You can temporarily restore your access to the previously ordered software by purchasing Access Guarantee Retrieval (AGR). Available for a small fee, this service will let you download software and view product keys from the order for an additional 60 days.
