Did you know that all students who attend New York City public schools have free access to Microsoft software and services?
Thanks to a partnership between the DOE, Microsoft, and NY City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, City students, along with their parents/guardians, are able to download the following Microsoft digital products free of charge:
- Office 365 ProPlus on Windows (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Skype for Business, Access, InfoPath and Publisher)
- Office for Mac Professional 2016 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote)
- Office for iPad, iPhone, Android (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote)
In addition, all City students and their parents/guardians have free access to Microsoft’s online Cloud service as well as Office Online.
Students and their families can download Microsoft software on up to five family computers and five family tablets, smartphones, and other mobile devices. To download this software, students (and/or their parents) should visit Microsoft’s website and enter their home phone number or email address in addition to their date of birth.
Anyone who is having difficulties registering for this Microsoft software should speak directly with staff members at his/her school’s main office. Please note, however, that government-issued photo identification may be required by schools to verify home addresses and other contact information.
