Office 365

Microsoft Student Advantage Program

UCLA Anderson, in partnership with Microsoft, is participating in the Student Advantage program. This program provides Anderson students enrolled in a degree-granting program access to Office 365 ProPlus - a full version of Microsoft Office - at no charge for the duration of their academic program!

Anderson students may download and install Microsoft Office for free on any combination of up to 5 personally-owned computing devices - such as a desktop computer, laptop computer, smartphone, or tablet.

The software may be used while you are offline, and has the same functionality as other versions of Office. Please be aware that, once installed, the software will perform a monthly license validation check when the system on which it is installed is connected to the internet.
