Office 365 Education for Students Program

Office 365 Education for Students is an Office 365 plan that is available for free to all active students who attend ORU and is available at www.Office.com/GetOffice365. This plan allows students to install Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Publisher, and Access on up to 5 PCs or Macs and Office apps on other mobile devices including Windows tablets and iPads.

How long can I use the plan?

If you are eligible, you can use the plan until you graduate or are no longer enrolled. At expiration, the Office applications enter a reduced-functionality mode, which means documents can be viewed but it isn’t possible to edit or create new documents. In addition, online services associated with the school email address, for example Office Online and OneDrive, will no longer work.

Can I share the plan with others?

Office 365 Education for Students is licensed for use only by the eligible student.
