Microsoft Offers Free Office 365 Access To Students

As part of a program they call Student Advantage, Microsoft is offering free access to Office 365 Education to students attending schools that have a license for Office 365 ProPlus or Office Professional Professional Plus for use by their faculty and staff. Subscriptions to Office 365 Pro Plus start at $12.00 per user per month for a year-long license.

The program states on December 1, 2013 and any educational institutions around the world are eligible. Microsoft says at this point more than 35,000 institutions with the license are already eligible.

Microsoft says there’s no limit to the number of students that could be included in the plan. Users would have access to World, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook and OneNote.

This could potentially save some universities hundreds of thousands of dollars in student license fees for some Office products.

Microsoft says that nearly 98% of students using productivity software currently use office. 

Anthony Salcito, VP of Worldwide Public Sector Education at Microsoft said, “Students use Office every day for school work and activities that are most important to them. Office not only helps students stay organized and get their work done today but at the same time develops skills that will be required when they enter the work force. We are thrilled to offer Student Advantage to schools across the globe so students have access to the latest, most up-to-date version of the world’s leading set of productivity tools in order to give them a competitive advantage when entering the workforce.”
