According to Microsoft:
http://www.microsoft.com/licensing/programs/open/default.mspx
Microsoft Open License is a software volume licensing program designed for corporate, government, charity, and academic customers purchasing as few as five licenses.


According to our software vendor (ccvsoftware.com):
Microsoft Open [Academic] products are licenses only. Media and documentation must be obtained separately by purchasing the media and documentaion kits listed below. After you get your media, you must call 888-652-2342 [microsoft product activation center] to register the media and then get the key code to unlock the media.

If all else fails, all the MS contacts are at:
http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/?ws=search


Hope this helps!
