Procedure

If you would like to request SPSS, please click "Request Software," and fill out form with appropriate infromation.  Granting access to this software is a manual process, so it will not happen instantly and will only be processed during business hours.

Individuals can install the software either from the UW network or by checking out the CD from the Information Technology Center. If you want to check out a disc from the ITC, please email itsoftw@uwyo.edu and we will make sure there is one available when you come.

Cost

IT covers a significant part of the SPSS cost, but departments are billed for part of each SPSS license per device on a pro-rated basis through the year. Departments should plan on an estimated 10 – 15% increase per year thereafter. Information Technology and the Central Student Technology Committee will continue to pay for a portion of the SPSS subscription for use in the UWStudent Computer Labs.

Time of Purchase Price until July 2019

There are various ways to license IBM SPSS Statistics for institutional administrative use (use that is not directly related to teaching or research). Depending on the analysis that an individual is doing the one-time cost can be anywhere from about $3,500 - $7,500 with the recurring annual costs for maintenance being between $700 - $1,500. This license type would not expire each year.  Please email us at itsoftw@uwyo.edu if you need an SPSS license for administrative purposes.

If SPSS needs to be used on a personally owned computer, it can be purchased for about $250 per year here.
