Microsoft Office 365


Office 365 is available for FREE to faculty, staff, & students.


Microsoft Office 365 does not have an operating system requirement. However, because it is cloud based, it requires a modern browser.

The current version of the following web browsers is recommended:

  • Internet Explorer
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Google Chrome
  • Apple Safari

NOTE: According to Microsoft, "Windows XP leaves extended support on April 8, 2014. Although Office 365 will not block users from connecting to the service from Windows XP devices after this date, you should expect the user experience to diminish over time. Users with low-memory devices running Windows XP and Internet Explorer 8 will have a substantially diminished browser experience with Office 365."


Office 365 Suite can be accessed via the cloud or can be downloaded up to 5 times on your personal PC, Mac, or mobile devices.
