Request ESRI Licenses (ArcGIS, CityEngine, Pro, and Training)

ESRI products are freely available to current faculty, staff, and students of Appalachian State University. Note: ArcGIS is only compatible with Windows (NOT Mac).

If you are using a university-owned computer, ArcGIS should be installed from the Software Center.

If you are using a personal computer, install the software: ArcGIS Desktop 10.8 (link to installer), ArcGIS Pro 2.7 (link to installer), or ESRI City Engine 2021 (link to installer). Once you have installed the software, complete the form below to request a license (Desktop, CityEngine) or account (Pro) to authenticate it.

All single-use license files expire annually on June 30th. All licenses may be renewed as long as you are affiliated with the university.
