What is Office 365 Education?

Office 365 Education is a collection of services that allows you to collaborate and share your schoolwork. It’s available for free to faculty and staff who are currently working at an academic institution and to students who are currently attending an academic institution. The service includes Office Online (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and OneNote), 1TB of OneDrive storage, Yammer, and SharePoint sites. Faculty, staff and students may install the full Office applications on up to 5 PCs or Macs for free.

How long can I use this plan?

You can use the plan as long as you are working at a qualified school. Your eligibility may be re-verified at any time. When your Office 365 Education plan expires:

  • The Office applications enter a reduced-functionality mode, which means that you can view documents, but you cannot edit or create new documents.
  • Online services associated with the school email address—for example, Office Online and OneDrive—will no longer work.
