  1. The SON has licensed IBM SPSS for 50 concurrent users. IMPORTANT NOTE FOR STUDENTS: It is highly recommended that you do NOT wait until the last minute to complete your assignments.  Licenses are available on a first come first served basis. If all 50 licenses are in use, the fifty-first person will not be allowed to run the application and this will not be accepted by your instructor as an excuse for not completing an assignment on time.   

  2. In order to launch the application the user must either be onsite or connected to the Hopkins network via the VPN.
    The JH Enterprise has comprehensive instructions here
  3. When the school upgrades the version of SPSS, end users will need to install the school's current version. This upgrade typically occurs every July. You will be notified when it is necessary to upgrade.
  4. The SON Help Desk is always here to offer assistance, but we do ask that students attempt to install SPSS on their machines themselves using the instructions below and contact the Help Desk only if they run into problems.
