UPDATE: As of June 2nd, 2017, the system is working again.  If you notice any issues with it, please let us know.

Note: On September 7, 2016, the DreamSpark name was retired, but the program benefits continue as the Microsoft Imagine program. Use your NetID to access the Microsoft Imagine Premium system.

On Oct 20, 2015 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 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 7 and Windows 8, 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.
