System Requirements

Requesting a License

AU students, faculty, and staff can request an ArcGIS Pro license by emailing geospatial@american.edu.  Please note that this software requires Microsoft Windows to run. 

Deleting ArcGIS Accounts

Since we have a limited number of licenses, and need to regularly set up new users, old or inactive ArcGIS Online accounts will be deleted by the administrator at or near the end of each semester. Criteria for deletion is as follows:

Accounts will be deleted if:

  • The account has been inactive for over six months

OR

  • The account has never been logged into

Account deletion includes content deletion and revocation of all assigned licenses. If you require an extension or exception to this protocol, please email geospatial@american.edu.
