Purchasing SPSS Statistics

Clemson University has a campus-wide academic license for SPSS Statistics. This covers the use of the software for faculty and students for teaching, learning, and non-commercial research purposes on ALL types of equipment (Clemson owned and otherwise)

Those wishing to use SPSS for administrative purposes or who want to install it on their personal computers must purchase their own copy (see below).

For faculty, SPSS can be installed to connect to an on-campus license server or with a standalone key. The benefit of the concurrent (license server) install is that keys don't need to be updated year-to-year. Alternatively, SPSS Statistics can be installed to use a standalone key. These are valid for one year, typically updated in August of each year, and stored on the Software Repository. When the key expires, the user's IT support will have to update the key for the user (access to those keys is restricted).

For students, previously SPSS needed to be purchased to be installed on their personal machine. Now, however, students can use the SPSS network license version ( Remember also that the Citrix version is free and does not require an install.

Alternatively, all students can buy a license of the SPSS "Grad Pack" (either Base or Standard packages) on The "Faculty Pack," which includes all modules and AMOS, is also available on These purchases do not have the "Clemson-owned equipment" restriction that our academic license does and can be installed on any device of the purchaser's choosing. To clarify: GradPack cannot be purchased from the Clemson Computer Store and only from
