The distributors of NWChem require their users to sign a User's Agreement, and HPCVL has done so. Like with other software, HPCVL requires users who want to use NWChem, to read this agreement , and sign a statement that they have done so and will abide by the terms of the license. You can fax the signed statement to us. You will then be included in a unix user group that has access to the NWChem executables.
