What is Office 365?
This is a special version of the Microsoft Office suite that is exclusively available to members of institutions (like ours) as a free, full download. You can download both desktop and mobile versions of the suite.
The Fine Print (Seriously, you should read this)
This exclusive version of Microsoft Office is tied to your student or faculty/staff account. If you leave this institution and your SEBTS login account becomes inactive (either by dropping all classes, graduating, or otherwise leaving the institution), this desktop product will cease to function. Please plan accordingly to have another license available or otherwise obtain a retail copy of Microsoft Office for your personal use.
Official statement from Microsoft
If you are eligible, you can use the plan until you graduate or are no longer enrolled at a qualified school. Student eligibility may be re-verified at any time. At expiration, the Office applications enter a reduced-functionality mode, which means documents can be viewed but it isn’t possible to edit or create new documents. In addition, online services associated with the school email address, for example Office Online and OneDrive, will no longer work.
Am I eligible?
All SEBTS Faculty, Staff, and Students are eligible to download and install the full desktop version of Microsoft Office ProPlus for PC and Mac. Additionally, users can sign in to the mobile versions of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote with their @sebts.edu account.
