An institution can either purchase a site license for its students or require students to purchase a key code.
Types of licenses
Your institution can adopt one of two types of SAM license. Both types offer the same features, but have different administrative properties.
|Key Code||Each student purchases a SAM key code, which they must enter to activate their account. Some institutions have a grace period, which allows temporary access for students without a key code.|
|Site License||The institution purchases a license for a specific number of students to use SAM for a fixed period of time. Students covered under a site license do not purchase a key code.|
