Microsoft Office for Students

The Microsoft Student Advantage program is an enterprise agreement between Microsoft and UCSB which allows actively enrolled students to download and install Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus desktop applications at no cost. Office 365 ProPlus is the new name for Microsoft Office for Students.

Once you are no longer a registered student, your Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus subscription will end. You will have the opportunity at that time to enroll in other available consumer or commercial offers.

To be able to use Office 365 you must download the software to your computer. Once you download the software you can install it. It should be noted that online use of the Microsoft Office applications is not currently available for the student plan.
