Software for Students

Office 365

Office 365 Education is a plan that's available to students who are currently attending an academic institution. The service is being offered free of charge to all CCAC students and will enable you to download and install the latest version of Microsoft Office up to five times on multiple devices. This agreement is made between Microsoft and CCAC students. CCAC can assist with some questions but does not determine eligibility, use of the plan or licensing structure. This is determined through Microsoft. Learn more about Office 365.

What does the Office 365 Package include?

Upon installing Office 365, you will have access to full versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote and more, plus 1 TB of free storage on OneDrive. You can install Office up to 5 times on any PC or Mac. It's available for free to students who are currently attending CCAC.

What is OneDrive?

OneDrive is an online storage service that you can use to store documents, photos, music and other types of files. With OneDrive you can access your files from almost any device and you can also share them with others. For more information on OneDrive, visit Microsoft OneDrive. To see your CCAC files, sign in using your ACD email account. 

How long can I use this plan?

You can use the plan until you graduate or are no longer enrolled at a qualifying school. Student eligibility may be re-verified at any time. 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.
