What is MSDN AA
MSDN AA Stands for the Microsoft Developer's Network Academic Alliance. It is a very extensive resource filled with software packages and suites available for different organizations. Stevens Institute of Technology is a member of the MSDN AA and with an account you may log on to download the available software.
Requesting an MSDN AA Account
Students and Faculty do not have MSDN AA Accounts created for them automatically. However, requesting an account is simple. Unfortunately, as per our licensing agreement, only Undergraduate students and Faculty/Staff are able to request one of these accounts.
1a. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your myStevens user name asking for an MSDN AA account.
1b. Or log into myStevens and click on Information Technology Helpdesk. Once there, create a ticket requesting an account.
2. You will receive an email notifying you of the account creation. The email will contain a randomized password for the account. (You can change the password on the MSDN AA website). Remember to bookmark this email if you do not change your password.
3. Log onto the Stevens MSDN AA portal.
