Get Office 365FAQ'sTutorials

Who can get Office 365?
Currently enrolled students (virtual and on campus) and actively employed faculty and staff (full-time and part-time). Access will be removed when you are no longer an enrolled student or when your employment ceases. You are not enrolled until you have completed payment for the current or upcoming semester.

What is included?

  • FHSU's licenses for Office 365 includes the full version of Microsoft Office including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, *Outlook, and more. *Outlook is not included for students.
  • Each user can install Office 365 on up to 5 home computers (PCs or Macs), 5 tablets including iPad, Android, or Windows, plus 5 mobile phones.

Note to Faculty and Staff:

  • FHSU preloads Office for faculty and staff on all University owned devices, so there is no need to download Office 365 on a work computer. Technology Services will continue to install and support all versions of Microsoft Office on university owned devices.

Office supports PCs and Windows tablets running Windows 7 or higher, and Macs with Mac OS X 10.6 or higher. Office for iPad can be installed on iPads running version 7.0 or higher. For information about mobile devices, visit www.office.com/mobile.

If I recently purchased Office and am now also eligible for free Office 365 though my school, will I receive any credit and/or compensation?
No. The Office purchased is a consumer offering and students can continue to take advantage of the purchased offer.

What happens when I graduate, or am no longer employed at FHSU?
When you graduate or your employment ceases, your Office 365 subscription through your institution ends. After you are no longer a currently enrolled student or a current employee, you will be notified of your options to continue or renew your Office 365 license.
