Downloading Office 365 ProPlus

Students can download full-fledged versions of Microsoft Office on their desktop up to five times on Windows 7/8 and Mac OS, and Office mobile apps up to five times on iOS and Android. These applications are available until the student leaves the University and require verification every 30 days. After the student leaves, the software will be available for a short amount before the software license expires.
