Welcome!


The Microsoft® Authorized Education Partner (AEP) program authorizes partners to purchase and resell Microsoft products at academic prices to Qualified Educational Users (QEUs).


Distributors will only accept orders for Microsoft academic products from partners that are AEPs. The program is designed to increase customer and partner satisfaction and to improve communication and service to our partners with a standard set of terms and conditions, improved training, and new resources and tools to keep the channel informed with up to date information on new products and events, in addition to guarding against channel miss-selling of academic licensing.
