Office 365

Students can use a college-owned computer in a computing lab or classroom, or you can get MS Office 365 Pro Plus:

  • one-year subscription for Office 365 Online using a new account
    • full access to mobile apps
    • full access to Office via web browser

Faculty and Staff have a few options available to them for their personal computers. 

  • There is the free A2 option
    • includes free Office 365 online now
    • until December 2014: not the mobile apps, and not the full software install
