    Please contact IT Services at infotech@gfcmsu.edu for instructions.

  • Before you click the install button please remove/uninstall any previous versions (including trial

    versions) of Microsoft Office. This will just insure a clean install of this version.

  • Also, you must make sure you are logging on to Microsoft from the computer/device that you

    want to install Office 365 Pro Plus on.

  • You can use the login.microsoft.com site to manage your installs. You can install to devices or

    deactivate an install to use on another device.

  • If you go on to MSU Billings, MSU Northern or MSU Bozeman, your student licensing should follow you.

    However, if you leave the MSU system your licensing will expire. If you move on outside MSU system, your new school may offer O365 but that will be under new licensing.
