We are happy to announce the availability of Microsoft Office 365 Apps for Enterprise (Pro Plus) for our Mac users.

What is Microsoft Office 365 for Mac?

Microsoft Office 365 for Mac is an online and desktop-based collection of powerful productivity apps. This version includes:

  • Microsoft Excel
  • Microsoft OneNote
  • Microsoft Outlook
  • Microsoft PowerPoint
  • Microsoft Word

How do I upgrade?

As students, faculty and staff using a Mac, you have access to the latest version of Microsoft Office 365 for Mac. For instructions on how to download and install the new version, please visit our Microsoft Office 365 upgrade instructions page.

Please Note: The installation package will remove the unsupported Microsoft Office 2016 version automatically. If you are using a Microsoft Office for Mac version older than 2016, or experience any issues and require assistance, please contact us.

Why should I upgrade?

Microsoft is ending support for Office 2016 for Mac in October.  While the current 2016 version of the Microsoft Office will continue to function, it will no longer receive software updates, security or functionality updates.  With this in mind, we strongly encourage you to upgrade to Microsoft Office 365 as soon as possible.
