Different academic programs have different levels of access to MSDNAA, which is Microsoft's Academic Alliance. For example, the Computer Engineering Technology program allows you access to Vista, Windows XP, MS Office 2007, Windows Server 2003, Windows 2000, MS Exchange Server 2007, Visual Studio 2005, etc. Software is available as CD/DVD image files only and you have to download and burn it yourself.
For the software programs that require a cd key, you have access to 1 (ONE and only ONE) unique cd key for each program.
Okay... so where do I get this stuff? Go to acs.senecac.on.ca and click "Downloads" on the left-hand side. You have to log in with your Seneca username and password. To get CD keys, click on "MSDNAA License" on the left-hand side, right below "Downloads". Again, you'll be prompted to enter your Seneca username and password.
If you don't know your username/password, then you probably haven't created it yet. Go to https://www.senecac.on.ca/pwservice/itaup.jsp and click on the "Activate my account" button.
