Office 365 Education for Students is included with tuition and fees and is available to current MACC students, faculty, and staff as part of MACC’s Microsoft Office campus agreement. This account is associated with the school and is available for student and employee personal or academic use.

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.
