If you are a current graduate student, and your OHIO email account has not been upgraded to Catmail, then the normal Mac/PC instructions will not work. Instead, follow the steps below to install your free copy of Office 365 ProPlus:

  1. Go to www.office365.com and click Sign In.
  2. Enter your OHIO email address and click Next.
