Office 365 Education is a collection of services that allows you to collaborate and share your schoolwork. It’s available for free to teachers who are currently working at an academic institution and to students who are currently attending an academic institution. The service includes Office Online (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and OneNote), 1TB of OneDrive storage, Yammer, and SharePoint sites. Some schools allow teachers and students to install the full Office applications on up to 5 PCs or Macs for free. If your school provides this additional benefit, you'll see the Install Office button on your Office 365 home page after you complete sign-up.

You must be a full-time or part-time faculty or staff member at an academic institution and:

  • Have a school-specific email address provided by the school (for example, contoso.edu) that can receive external email.
  • Be of legal age to sign up for an online offer individually (13 years old).
  • Have Internet access.

To see what’s included in Office 365 Education, visit the Office 365 Education plan page. You can enroll your school from there.

You can use the plan as long as you are working at a qualified school. Your eligibility may be re-verified at any time. When your Office 365 Education plan expires:

  • The Office applications enter a reduced-functionality mode, which means that you can view documents, but you cannot edit or create new documents.
  • Online services associated with the school email address—for example, Office Online and OneDrive—will no longer work.

In many cases, the response time is instantaneous through an automated verification process. In other cases where an institution needs to be verified, it shouldn’t take more than three to seven days. If you are nearing the end of your 30-day trial and have not received approval of eligibility, please contact customer support.

We've created a promotion kit to help you communicate to students and educators how they can take advantage of the state-of-the-art productivity and collaboration tools you are providing for them through Office 365. Learn more
