ABOUT OFFICE 365 FOR STUDENTS
IT Services offers enrolled students a subscription to Microsoft Office 365 with OneDrive storage at no cost. Each subscription license allows you to run Office on up to five desktop computers (Mac or PC). You can also run Office on up to five mobile devices. The subscription includes 1,000 GB of file storage through Microsoft's OneDrive.
HOW LONG CAN I KEEP MY OFFICE 365 SUBSCRIPTION?
