Schools Can Now Check If They Qualify
Last week, at a public event held by the New York City Department of Education, all students plus teachers were awarded free access to Office365 ProPlus. When the announcement was made, the room filled with students and teachers erupted with cheers. Now Microsoft is opening up the same opportunity to at a school near you!
Millions of students around the world are eligible for free Office from their school and Microsoft made it easy for all eligible students globally to sign up themselves to get Office 365 and install free Office.* This service was previously available only in the U.S., but beginning today it can be accessed by any eligible student or teacher where Office 365 is available. A valid school email address is required to complete the sign up.
To check if you’re eligible for free Office from your school:
- Students—Go to office.com/getoffice365 and enter a school-provided email address.
- Teachers—Go to office.com/teachers and enter your school-provided email address.
Students getting Office at no additional cost to schools is a benefit Microsoft provides to education institutions that buy Office for faculty and staff. That means teachers can also sign up and enjoy all the benefits of Office connected to a cloud service, like using the OneNote Class Notebook.
This exclusive offer from Microsoft includes the following:
- The latest version of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Access and Publisher installed on up to five PCs or Macs and up to five mobile devices like iPad, Android and Windows tablets
- 1TB of storage on OneDrive you can use to store and share all your documents across all your devices.
- Office Online for in-browser editing, collaboration and co-authoring
