Office 365 Student Advantage


FREE Microsoft Office for Students


JCCC Academic Technology Services (a division of JCCC Information Services), in partnership with Microsoft, will begin providing Microsoft Office to credit students at no cost via the Microsoft Student Advantage program. This program allows students to download and install full versions of Microsoft Office.

Office on your PC includes Word, Access, Excel,  PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, and Lync.  Office on your Mac includes Word, Excel, Outlook, and PowerPoint.

Students enrolled for one or more credit classes at JCCC are eligible for the Office 365 Pro Plus license.  Students must connect to the Internet once every 30 days to verify they are still eligible for the program. Students who graduate or are no longer enrolled for credit courses will lose their license.
