Microsoft Imagine Premium
Note: NetID authentication was added and students should be able to login using their NetID account information... which will redirect you to an MSU login page.
Background information: The Gianforte School of Computing (as well as a few other NACOE departments) subscribes to the Microsoft Imagine Premium program (formerly known as Microsoft DreamSpark Premium) at a renewal cost of $799.00 for 3 years. Subscribing to Imagine Premium allows Faculty, Staff and Students to download / license many of Microsoft's development tools including Visual Studio as well as Microsoft's operating systems (Windows 10, Windows Server 2016, etc). It does NOT offer Microsoft Office but does offer some pieces of it that are useful for development like Visio and Access. The Imagine Premium web service is run by a contractor for Microsoft and hosted outside of MSU's network.
Here is the link to the CS Department's Imagine Premium site.
