Program Eligibility Requirements
This Program is available only to individuals who meet the criteria described below:

If you participate in the Program, Microsoft reserves the right to contact you directly or through an appointed Microsoft vendor to verify that you are an Eligible Student. If you choose not to provide sufficient documentation to Microsoft or its appointed vendor that verifies that you are an Eligible Student, you agree to reimburse Microsoft for the difference between what you paid in connection with a discounted Program offer and the estimated full retail price of the same product(s). Microsoft will have sole discretion to determine the sufficiency of any documentation that you provide to verify you are an Eligible Student. By providing eligibility-related information to Microsoft's appointed vendor, you agree that the vendor may share such information with Microsoft for Program-related purposes.
Microsoft, in its sole discretion, may accept other forms of validation to determine eligibility in lieu of the online student status verification process.
