Students enrolled in a College of Business class can obtain Microsoft Software through Microsoft Imagine, including more than 100 titles available for free download. These are full versions of the software and do not expire. Each package allows for one installation on one computer, and one copy of each software package.

Current College of Business Majors and Minors: To access the software, point your browser to www.cba.ksu.edu/software and sign in to the K-State single sign on page with your K-State eID and password. This option is only available for College of Business Administration Students.

Non College of Business Majors and Minors taking CBA classes: Students who are taking a CBA class but are not CBA major or minor may submit the CBA Software Form below giving us permission to submit your email address to the Microsoft Imagine site. You must use your K-State email address and WID. You should receive an email from the Microsoft Imagine Software Center a few days after submitting your information. Follow the instructions in the email to log into the Software Center to register and purchase your software. If you don't see the email, it is possible that your spam blocker or some other filter has blocked the email and you will need to check in your junk email folder.
