For the 2021-2022 academic year, we are once again able to provide licenses to install SPSS on student and faculty personally-owned Mac or Windows computers. After this academic year we do not expect to renew our site license for SPSS, as the faculty teaching with it are switching to jamovi. Instructions are also available for installing on campus Macs and campus Windows computers.
- Download the appropriate installer. You will need to sign in to Dropbox with your Davidson account in order to access the installer.
- Run the installer you have downloaded. We recommend the default settings for most users, unless you have reason to choose otherwise.
- When prompted for licensing information, choose Authorized User and enter the authorization code provided by your professor. If you need SPSS for an independent study project and not a whole class assignment, contact T&I to receive an authorization code.
Licenses now being issued are good until June 30, 2022. If you have a previous install of SPSS from the 2020-2021 academic year and want to keep using the software past June 30, contact T&I to request an updated authorization code. Mention if you are using v26 or v27.
