1. Check which account you're logged into

It is not uncommon for a user to be logged into his or her web browser as a different account (a or account, for example). If you wish to remain logged into your other account, then access Chargerware in a different web browser or use private browsing.

2. Check who the software is available to

The table on shows which users (faculty, staff, students) a product is available to; please note that some products are not available to students.

No products are provided for prospective students or alumni. Only current faculty, staff, and students can access the software in Chargerware.

Product Keys and Access Codes

Certain software packages require a product key. When this is required you will see a link to download a file (typically a PDF) containing the product key. The file may be viewable (without downloading). The product key will be available to you if you are authorized to install the software.

Log out of Chargerware
