Office 365 is free for current students with Windows 7 or later, or Mac OS 10.10 or later for installation on up to five devices (computers, tablets, phones). Navigate to the following link to begin your download of the Office 365 Suite of applications: http://products.office.com/en-us/student/office-in-education

You will be prompted to login with your student email address. When you have input your Mocsmail address, Microsoft will send you an email with a link to complete the setup process.

Login with your Mocsmail account and create a password (see Figure 1 below). You will need to manage this password separately from your email password as this information is only stored in Microsoft’s system. Currently, UTC IT is unable to assist with password resets or forgotten/expired passwords on Microsoft’s site.

Once you have created your Microsoft login, you will be directed to a page that allows you to download and install Office 365 on your PC or Mac (Figure 2 and Figure 3 below). If you are installing Office 365 on a PC, when you click on “Install” it will download the 32-bit version by default. If you require or prefer the 64-bit version of Office, click on “Advanced.”

To install Office 365 on your phone or tablet, go to the App Store on Apple devices or Google Play on Android devices and download the applications individually (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. can all be downloaded separately on mobile devices). Login on these apps using your Mocsmail address and the password that you just set up.

Be sure to update your contact information after logging in. This will allow you to reset your password if you ever forget it. You can locate these settings under Office 365 Settings > Contact Preferences (see Figure 4 below).
