Brenau does not currently have a campus license for SPSS. In order to obtain SPSS, you can purchase it directly from Please note that IBM requires SPSS be licensed annually so you may need to repeat this process every year depending on how often you use it. It is requested that you only license the software if it is absolutely required for a class or other job function.
