  • Note: Please use the University of Alberta Windows 7 custom version if you use PeopleSoft on a regular basis in Internet Explorer.

    Windows 8.1 comes with Internet Explorer 11 built-in, and the current version of PeopleSoft employed by the University of Alberta has features that are incompatible with Internet Explorer 11.

  • The Microsoft software may only be installed on University of Alberta owned equipment and cannot be installed for home use.

    This software relies on the KMS licensing server and the computer must be on campus on a regular basis to ensure the license remains active.
