Purchasing Software

Find what you need on MagnusMart

Complete Your MagnusMart Training

As in the past, IS&T maintains a discount buying program with Adobe and Microsoft products through CDW. You can now take advantage of these special prices via MagnusMart. You can still purchase what you need from CDW but you will access those items from inside MagnusMart.

Discounted IUC pricing is available on MagnusMart. To purchase products from Microsoft, Adobe or other vendors, purchase directly from CDW-G.  Product codes change so please contact Sue Pichotta (suep@cdwg.com / 312-705-9028) at CDW for help or questions ordering specific software including the correct product code.

Visit the custom CSU CDW-G portal and paste the appropriate code (see previous paragraph) into the Contracts search box near the bottom of the page.

The Contacts search box is where you will paste the product code.
