Microsoft Consolidated Campus Agreement (MCCA)

The UC MCCA agreement allows departments to purchase annual licenses for the most popular Microsoft desktop and server products as well as subscribe to Microsoft online services at substantially discounted prices. Enrolling in the MCCA makes sense if your department: has more computers than people, wants simplified compliance and administration, lab computer desktop products included at no additional cost, and consistent predictable expenses per year.  Student coverage for Office 365 is included with the MCCA.  Under the MCCA each department can choose its own custom mix of products.

Microsoft Activation for Office, Windows and Windows Server

UCLA has systems in place to facilitate Microsoft’s Volume Activation mechanisms (KMS/MAK) that are required to enable use of Office, Windows and Windows Server.  Any machine that accesses the UCLA campus network at least once every 90 days is encouraged to use the KMS instead of MAK activation.
