MACC Students, Faculty and Staff Get Office 365 Free
As part of MACC's new Microsoft Office campus agreement, Office 365 Education for Students is available free to current MACC students, faculty and staff.
This account is associated with the school and is available for student and employee personal or academic use. The plan also includes 1TB of OneDrive storage. Users can edit and collaborate using Office Online, Yammer, and SharePoint sites. When registering, you must use your MACC email address.
Here's what you do to get Office for free:
- Go to Office 365 for Students.
- Enter a valid school-provided email address
Here's what qualified students and employees will receive:
- The latest versions of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Access and Publisher
- Installation on up to five PCs or Macs, and Office apps on other mobile devices including Windows tablets and iPad®
- 1 Terabyte of OneDrive cloud storage
- Office Online
You can use the plan until you are no longer employed or enrolled at MACC. User eligibility may be re-verified by Microsoft at any time. At expiration, the Office applications enter a reduced-functionality mode, which means documents may be viewed but it is not possible to edit or create new document. In addition online services associated with the school email address, for example Office, Online and OneDrive, will no longer work.
Office 365 Education for Students is licensed for use only by the eligible student or employee at a qualifying school.
