IAM Dreamspark Premium

The Interactive Arts and Media department is a member of Microsoft's Dreamspark program. This partnership gives all current IAM students and faculty access to Microsoft professional-level developer and designer tools at no cost.

Eligible students and faculty should expect to recieve an email in their Loop or Columbia email account after the second week of the respective semester inviting them to access their free Dreamspark account. This access will last for the length of the semester in which you are currently enrolled or teaching. It will then either expire or renew in the beginning of the following semester based on eligibility.

If you did not recieve an email be sure to check your junk box for emails from noreply@kivuto.com. You can also check here, to see if you have a current account and have your password emailed to your Loop/Columbia email account. Your username will be your email account.
