NERCOMP originated as a time-sharing consortium in the days of big, multi-million dollar mainframes. This time-sharing consortium has evolved into a variety of licensing agreements that NERCOMP makes available at substantial savings to its Member institutions. Currently, NERCOMP members can take advantage of NERCOMP participation agreements with Microsoft, Adobe Element K, as well as a number of evolving relationships (outlined below).
To participate in NERCOMP licensing agreements, an institution must first have its request for membership approved by the board and pay the annual dues for the current year. The licensing agreements all have deadlines that may differ from our membership year. More information is available in the section on Licensing Details for logged-in members.
NERCOMP has renewed their Contractual License Program (CLP) with Adobe Systems Inc. Adobe’s CLP 5.0 is a flexible licensing program that enables NERCOMP members to purchase Adobe software products and receive the discounts and benefits of a large-volume purchase without having to make large upfront expenditures. NERCOMP members are thus able to receive substantial discounts over and above the existing standalone educational prices provided by Adobe.
