In Summer 2015,students will be able to choose the Microsoft Office 2013 suite for their free download of Microsoft Office (make sure to select the Student Option and NOT the 'Work at Home' option). Students who have already downloaded a free copy of Microsoft Office 2010 are still eligible for ONE free download of Microsoft Office 2013.

Additionally, Office 2013 is NOT compatible with Macs. Mac users MUST use Office 2011. If you choose to download Office 2016 for Macs, do so at your own discretion, as the Technology Service Desk is unable to provide assistance with this version of the software.

Do you have a Mac and already utilized your free download? Is your Mac lacking a disc drive? You can purchase an Office 2011 CD from the Technology Service Desk and use your product key for a digital download at the following site:
