Microsoft Volume License Service Center Login Changes

Effective beyond January 2021, with a new date to be advised in the near future, Microsoft users will need a Work or School Account (WSA) to sign in to Volume License Service Center (VLSC).

If you still use a Microsoft Account (MSA) (previously called “Live ID”) to login in to VLSC, please follow these three scenarios for this conversion:

Scenario 1: If you are a first-time user of VLSC and don’t have a WSA, sign in as a “new user” or inherit permissions from an existing MSA.

Scenario 2: If you have previously signed in to VLSC using an MSA, you can login with this existing MSA up to five times before you must use or create a WSA for continued access to the portal.

Scenario 3: If you are an existing Microsoft Azure Active Directory (AAD) user, sign in with a WSA and follow the AAD sign-in experience. Internal admin takeover of the Azure Directory might be necessary in this scenario. For more information and in-depth instructions on this scenario, refer to this resource document:
