Install Office 365

Please note that Office 365 will not install on Windows XP or Windows Vista.

Also note that you must uninstall all previous versions of Microsoft Office before installing Office 365. Installation will fail if any other version of Microsoft Office is installed on your system.

Once you've ensured your system is compatible and no other version of Office is installed, you're ready to install Office 365.

Sign into Office 365 account using your full email address (joesomebody@usca.edu) and password at: https://portal.microsoftonline.com/

Left-click the gear in the upper-right.

Left-click Office 365 Settings

Left-click "Install and manage software" under Software from the Settings menu.  (As noted: DO NOT use the Password Reset function found here. Your Office 365 account password is tied to your normal USCA Faculty/Staff or PacerStudent account.)

You'll see the screen below.

It shows any current installs with the option to Deactivate any if needed.  You'll also see the number of available installs you have remaining.  You have a total of five installs with your USCA related account.

The operating system on your device will be automatically detected and the proper version of Office 365 selected for install.  If you choose to install, left-click the Install button to begin installation.  Follow any on-screen prompts to complete installation.
