Microsoft Campus Advantage – Office 365 Pro Plus

CI has begun providing Microsoft Office 365 Pro Plus for all faculty, staff and students at no cost via the Microsoft Campus Advantage program. This agreement between CI and Microsoft allows us to provide current faculty, staff and students with the latest full version of Office on their home computers. Included is a 1TB OneDrive for personal file storage needs. Please note that it is not appropriate to store university data in OneDrive. As a member of the CI community, you can register yourself via the Office365 Portal provided by Microsoft. Just follow the instructions on the page to get your free Microsoft Office Pro Plus Software: http://products.office.com/en-us/student/office-in-education?tab=teachers.

If you have additional questions, many answers can be found at our FAQ page: http://www.csuci.edu/its/msoffice365/index.htm .

Because this software is provided directly to you for your home computer or device, you will need to get support from Microsoft; while the Help Desk can answer general questions, they cannot assist you with the configuration of your personally-owned computer or device.
