1In the above table, the use of “E” in the names of Add-on User SLs and Corresponding Online Service User SLs does not indicate that these products are offered as Enterprise Products.   Rather, it is an abbreviation of the names of Office 365 products, where “E” stands for the word Enterprise and “G” stands for the word Government.

 

The following terms and conditions apply to the Add-on User SLs listed in the above table.

 

Purchase Eligibility

To purchase an Add-on User SL:

4  Customers must have an active Enterprise Enrollment with active Software Assurance for the corresponding Qualifying License(s). The Qualifying License(s) may be user- or device-based.

4  Customers with a pre-2010 version of the MBSA must sign the Online Services Supplemental Terms and Conditions.

 

Purchase Restrictions

Only one Add-on User SL may be purchased for each Qualifying License (or set of Qualifying Licenses).

 

License Assignment

Each Add-on User SL must be assigned to a single Qualified User (as defined in the Customer’s Enterprise Enrollment). Add-on User SLs may be reassigned to other Qualified Users in accordance with the Microsoft Volume Licensing Product Use Rights (PUR) Universal License Terms that govern license reassignment of user SLs.

 

Use Rights

Each Add-on User SL provides use rights equivalent to the Corresponding Online Service User SL. The use rights for each Corresponding Online Service User SL are set forth in the PUR. Use rights acquired through the purchase of these Add-on User SLs expire with the earlier of the expiration of the Software Assurance coverage for the Qualifying License(s) or at the end of the subscription term for the Add-on User SL. Purchase of these Add-on User SLs does not impact the use rights for the Qualifying License(s).

 

True-ups

Add-on User SLs are not Enterprise Products or Enterprise Online Services. They may not be used to meet the Enterprise-wide requirements in an Enterprise Enrollment. For example, if a customer selects Office Professional Plus as an Enterprise Product on their Enterprise Enrollment and uses an Add-on User SL to install Office 365 ProPlus on a Qualified Device without Office Professional Plus, they must still submit a True-up order for Office Professional Plus on that Qualified Device—along with any other Enterprise Products required for that Qualified Device.

 


Office 365 Education A2-A4 (User SL)

Office 365 Plans Education A2-A4 consist of academic specific versions of the same online services that comprise Office 365 Plan Enterprise E2-E4. Use rights for Plans Education A2-A4 and their components are equivalent to their commercial counterparts. However, users with Office 365 Plan Education A2 USL’s are not permitted to access on premise servers.

Under School Agreement, subscription licenses for Office 365 Plans must be acquired per user on an institution wide or non-institution wide basis. If additional User Subscription Licenses are required to access O365 Plan mid-term, Institution must submit an order for such Licenses. Institution can use any O365 Plan to meet the program minimum requirements. When licensing O365 Add-On, the corresponding qualifying product must be licensed under the same enrollment. When placing anniversary orders, Institution may order fewer licenses for Online Services than the quantity of Institution’s initial order as long as the anniversary order meets the minimum requirements for Platform Online Services

USL Add-ons:

Institutions that have qualifying products coverage may purchase the corresponding User Subscription License for O365 Add-on Plan, as detailed in the table below. Institutions with a School Agreement: Institutions may purchase the corresponding User Subscription License for O365 Add-on Plan for their Users up to the same quantity as their Eligible PC count so long as they have coverage for the qualifying products.
