Install Microsoft Office 365 For Students

Issue:

How do I get Microsoft Office?

Is there a student discount for Microsoft Office?

I got Office 365 through the college, but it says it is not activated.

I am trying to get Office 365, but it is not accepting my credentials.

How do I log in to Office 365?

 

Environment: 

Microsoft Office 365

CofC Students

 

Cause:

College of Charleston students are eligible for free access to Office 365

 

Resolution:

Office 365 apps on your computer

  1. Go to office.com
  2. Sign in* with your <username>@g.cofc.edu e-mail address** and your MyCharleston password (not your e-mail password, which may be different).
    • Note: If you are or have been a student worker, with an @cofc.edu email address, you should use <username>@cofc.edu instead.
    • Be sure to click on the sign in button. Attempting to sign up rather than sign in will give an error message.
  3. Click Install Office then Office 356 Apps to download the Office installer.

       3. Follow the steps to download the installer (Mac view)

Windows View

 

Note that Office 365 may take as long as three hours to notice MyCharleston password changes. If you have just changed your password, you may not be able to sign in immediately. Once logged into the Office online portal, there should be a variety of Office online applications to use.

It's highy suggested that you install OneDrive to store your files. see: Get Started with OneDrive
