A valid UIC NetID and affiliation is required in order to purchase software from the WebStore. When authenticating to the WebStore, must be appended after the NetID (for example instead of adabyron).

Personal purchase

Personal purchase software is for personally-owned computers and requires a valid credit card for items that are not free. For all personal and student purchases, only the person who placed the order can pick it up.

Unit purchase

Unit purchase software is for University-owned computers and requires a Banner Account Number for items that are not free. For unit purchase orders (with some exceptions), anyone from the unit can pick up software, as long as they present the UIC i-card (or ID) of the person who placed the order.


University P-Cards are not accepted as payment. Offers labeled -UIUC ONLY or -UIS ONLY do not apply to UIC.


Cost varies by software.
