Commuter Utility

The Commuter Utility allows users to use SPSS on their personal computers for a set amount of time without having to buy the program. In order to access the commuter utility, your computer must be connected to the University's network. If you are off campus, you will need to use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to connect to the network. To install the University VPN, refer to the GlobalProject VPN Installation article.
