NOTE: The School of Medicine does not participate at all in the PennO365 initiative, but instead uses the Penn Medicine O365 instance. For information on downloading Office, direct users to https://www.med.upenn.edu/pmacs/o365-faq.html?preview=true or (215) 662-7474. 

Licensing 

If a student requests information on what will happen to their PennO365 account following graduation, refer them to their school’s LSP.  Each school handles this differently, resulting in different dates for deactivation.  You can let the student know that their information will be available for 60 days after the date given by their LSP. 

 

Here are just a few features Office ProPlus 365 offers for students. They will be able to: 

  • Install Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus on up to 5 (five) personal devices, including PC or Mac, Windows Phone, Android, and iPhone. 

  • Synchronize their class notes with OneNote. 

  • In real time, use Microsoft Office Online to collaborate and co-author Word, PowerPoint, and Excel documents without losing formatting, fonts, spacing, and layout. Best of all, it doesn’t matter where they are, this works across a variety of browsers and mobile devices.
