With Student Advantage, current OHIO students can install Office 365 ProPlus on up to 5 devices at no charge. 

Office 365 ProPlus is a cloud based service that includes popular productivity applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook. Versions are available for Windows, Mac OS, iOS, Windows Mobile and Android. The Windows version also includes Access, OneNote and Publisher.

Students can download the Windows and Mac OS installers from inside the Catmail web interface. Graduate students who have yet to be upgraded from Exchange to Catmail can follow this workaround to install Office. Mobile versions can be downloaded from their respective app stores.

Subscriptions are valid as long as a student is eligible to register for classes.
