Back in September, Microsoft announced a program that let students at US schools see if they were eligible for a free Office 365 license. Students and teachers outside the US can now take advantage of the streamlined process as well.
Microsoft says that millions of students around the world qualify for free Office subscriptions. Eligible students simply need a school email address in order to complete the sign up.
Although these students were technically already qualified for Office, they would have to go through a lengthy process with their schools to approve the subscription; the new process should make it much easier for students to sign up right away.
As before, students receive Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Access and Publisher with their subscriptions. They’ll also get 1 TB of OneDrive Storage and access to Office Online.
