Tech News

Information from Neil Rollins:

Beginning September 22, 2014, students, faculty, and staff eligible for Office 365 ProPlus from their school can now take advantage of a new self-service sign up process. In the past, organizations were burdened with initiating the service, creating accounts and ordering the free licenses on behalf of their users. The new self-service model removes all of that unnecessary friction and delay by simply allowing eligible users to sign up for the service themselves, while maintaining the same level of control, flexibility and security institutions have come to expect from Office 365.

To check their eligibility of the ProPlus benefit, students, faculty, and staff can go to www.office.com/getoffice365 and enter a school-provided email address. Once validated, users over the age of 13 can create an Office 365 account and get access to Office 365 ProPlus, OneDrive for business, SharePoint Online, Office Online.
