This Information is for Students That Use or Want to Use the AutoCAD software:

Students have this option because of the contract we currently have with AutoCAD.

This is ONLY for CURRENT STUDENTS that are attending either NDSU or UND campuses.

This site will allow students to download one-year licenses of software from this site.

The software will just timeout after a year, and is then unusable.  So if a student downloads the software and then ends up leaving the school before that year is up, that is ok because it will just time out after that year anyway.

Students will have to go to the following website to create an account to begin downloading the software.  In order to create an account on this site the students will need to have an e-mail address that ends with .edu.
