The OpenVMS Educational License Program is patterned after the HP OpenVMS Hobbyist Program. It is offered in response to your
requests that we make HP OpenVMS available to educational institutions at no cost.
All types of educational institutions worldwide are eligible. All you have to do is request an access code over the Web, register your school, and once registered, anyone at your school can use the access code to get a product authorization key (PAK) through e-mail. The base license for HP OpenVMS is included, and you may request over 100 layered product PAKs. The licenses are good from August to August and must be renewed annually. Anyone associated with an educational institution—students, faculty or administrators—may use these licenses. The pages listed below will get you started.
Note: All existing educational programs, such as the Campuswide Software License Grant (CSLG) program, remain in place.
