FAQs

  • How do I save files on my Android or iPhone version of the Office application?

    All files in Microsoft Office Mobile must be saved to OneDrive, because it does not allow files to save locally to your phone. Saving is only supported by Microsoft Consumer accounts, which you can sign up for free here

  • How long can I use Office 365 Pro Plus?

    Office 365 Pro Plus will be available to you as long as your campus account is active. Two semesters after you have left Wright State, Office 365 Pro Plus will automatically switch to read-only mode (you can still view your saved documents, but not edit them or save new files).

  • What if I already have Office 2011 or 2013?

    If you want to use Office 365 ProPlus through Student Advantage, you should uninstall any copy of Office already installed on your computer.

    Note: If you have previously purchased a copy of Microsoft Office through the CaTS Home Software Store, we recommend that you keep your discs if you plan on installing Student Advantage. Access to Student Advantage will expire after you graduate and are no longer a student. You will still be able to use your Office discs after you graduate.
     

  • Why is it asking for a product key?

    If you receive a request for a product key in order to activate the software, you aren’t signed in. Select ‘Sign In’ and use your Office 365 email and password to access the software.

  • What is the difference between the free Office and the Office in the Home Software Store?

    Office 365 Pro Plus Student Advantage is a free subscription service available while you maintain student status. After you leave the university it will expire with the option of converting to a paid subscription.

    Office Pro Plus for Windows or Mac is available through the CaTS Home Software Store at a low cost. This is a perpetual license that never expires.
