Symantec Government and Academic Buying Programs

For Qualified Government Entities, Academic Institutions or Charities

Symantec Government and Academic Programs are for qualified government entities, academic institutions or charities that need to purchase license quantities without signed contracts or financial commitments. The programs simplify buying license quantities for use in the country of purchase. Buyers are freed from formal contracts and commitments, and are eligible to earn increased discounts for purchases that grow with the size of each order. Managing discount eligibility can help institutions meet their budget challenges at all levels.


The Government Licensing Program is available to qualified entities at the federal, state, territory, county, municipal or tribal level. Departments of qualifying government entities may include executive, legislative, judicial or administrative functions.

Qualified government institutions may include other special entities such as the United Nations (U.N.) and affiliates, North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), public utilities, public hospitals, public libraries and other quasi-governmental agencies, excluding academic entities.

An academic institution must be organized and operated for educational purposes, such as a public or private school, college or university and be accredited by an appropriate government board of education or accrediting organization.

Other qualified institutions can include healthcare entities with a major teaching component or libraries owned and operated by a qualified academic institution. Qualified charitable organizations are also eligible under the Academic Licensing Program.
