VMware Academic Program (VMAP)

Easily Manage and Distribute VMware Software

VMware offers two academic programs for educational institutions: Academic Software Licensing and the IT Academy.

Academic Software Licensing

Academic Software Licensing provides software licenses for teaching, research, and personal discovery. It cannot be used for campus infrastructure, non-academic purposes or any for-profit activity.

IT Academy

IT Academy provides VMware-developed educational materials and certification resources for people seeking IT positions. It is not intended for campus infrastructure, non-academic purposes or any for-profit activity.

In partnership with Kivuto, VMware Academic Software Licensing and the IT Academy are offered to institutions and departments as a subscription-based program.  As part of the subscription, you are given access to a custom branded WebStore which allows your members to easily access resources.
