Great Circle Learning Software License Purchase Options

Software licenses to Great Circle Learning products are available as subscription licenses or perpetual licenses. Purchase a license seat for each user. When you purchase a quantity of 2 or more in a single order, one serial number will be issued that will allow activation of the quantity purchased.

Perpetual License

A Perpetual License will run forever with the specific version of the software you purchase and the specific version of Microsoft Office the license is tied to when you purchase it.

Pay once, upfront, for a perpetual license.

When you want to move to a new version of the software or when your version of Office changes you will need to buy a new license. 

Subscription License

A Subscription License will run for 12 months and includes free access to new releases of the software during your subscription term.  

Subscriptions run interchangeably with Office 2016, 2013, 2011, 2010 and 2007 on a PC or Mac. (Please check our store for currently available Mac versions.) All subscriptions run with Office 365 as long as a desktop version of Office is also installed (either 2016, 2013, 2011, 2010, or 2007). 

There are two ways to pay for a subscription license, 1-Payment or 12-Payments.

Both payment plans run for 12 months.


1-Payment subscriptions expire one year from the date of purchase. The option to renew is always available.



12-Payment subscriptions renew one month from the date of purchase, and then on the same date every month until cancelled. The method of payment used for the initial payment is charged each month on the renewal date. On the annual expiration date this payment plan subscription will automatically renew, unless cancelled.


A subscription license can be cancelled without penalty at at any time; however, there are no partial refunds. Cancelling stops the next scheduled billing, which also ends the subscription. 

Sales Tax 

If tax applies to your order you must pay the tax to complete the order. If your organization is tax exempt you can request an immediate sales tax refund after the transaction processes.

This is how to request a sales tax refund:

  1. Send an e-mail  
  2. Type "Sales Tax Refund Request" into the Subject Line
  3. In the body of the e-mail include the Order Number ID shown on your invoice / order confirmation
  4. Attach your organization's tax exempt documentation to the email.  

This may be a certificate, tax form, or other government-issued documentation.

If you are not able to attach an electronic copy of your documentation, please include your organization's tax-exempt ID.


Digital River Support will respond to your request within 24 hours. The funds will post back to the payment account (e.g., credit card) used for the order within 3-5 business days, or sooner.
