The Microsoft Enrollment for Education Solutions (EES) Agreement is a volume licensing subscription program that allows qualified academic customers to purchase Microsoft software and services under a single agreement. Specifically designed to address the unique needs of education institutions, EES licenses all university machines based upon the institutional headcount rather than the individual machine.
As of May 2015, Microsoft has begun adding the below
benefits to their EES Campus Agreements:
No-cost Azure Active Directory Basic
The price for Azure Active Directory Basic will be dropping to $0 for both Faculty and Student SKUs in all academic programs, including EES (Campus), School, and OVS-ES.
No-cost Intune Add-on with Student Advantage Benefit
Any EES (Campus) or School, or OVS-ES customer that covers 100% of their organization's faculty and staff with Intune Add-on can provide Intune Add-on to their entire organization’s student body at no additional licensing cost.
To take advantage of the Student Advantage Benefit, contact your Microsoft partner to order the $0 Intune Add-on for Students w/ Faculty SKU. If the organization-wide faculty/staff coverage includes only a specific school or department, then only the students enrolled in that school or department are eligible. Paid Intune Add-on continues for all other scenarios.
No-cost Intune full USL with Student Advantage Benefit
Any EES (Campus) or School customer that covers 100% of their organization's faculty and staff with Intune User Subscription License (USL) can provide Intune USL to their entire organization’s student body at no additional licensing cost.
Take advantage of the Student Advantage Benefit by contacting your Microsoft partner to order the $0 Intune USL for Students w/ Faculty SKU. If the organization-wide faculty/staff coverage includes only a specific school or department, then only the students enrolled in that school or department are eligible. Paid Intune USL continues for all other scenarios.
In addition to the above May pricing benefits, there are three no-cost benefits to the institution, staff, and students that come with the implementation of a Campus Agreement:
- Yammer for internal social collaboration in the institution
- Free Office 365 for students with the Student Advantage Benefit
- Free Office 365 for faculty and staff with the Teacher Advantage Benefit
