Free Office 365 ProPlus For Students From Microsoft, Kind Of

office-freeFrom December 1st, 2013 onward, if you happen to be a student, you will be able to access Microsoft’s cloud-based Office 365 ProPlus without having to fork out a single cent for it, kind of anyways. The folks over at Microsoft has just announced the availability of a new Student Advantage program which would enable any academic institution which licenses Office 365 ProPlus or Office Professional Plus for staff and faculty, in order for them to provide Office 365 ProPlus to its students as well – for free! This would mean that the entire suite of products, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, InfoPath, and Access, will be part of the equation.

At the moment, a ballpark figure of the number of people who use the cloud-based Microsoft Office 365 Education happens to stand at somewhere in the region of 110 million students, faculty, and staff. With the introduction of Office 365 ProPlus, students will be able to enjoy “all the familiar and full Office applications — locally installed on up to five devices and available offline.” There are over 35,000 institutions which happen to be automatically eligible to participate in the Student Advantage service, and it will also play nice with different cloud services including Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, and Lync Online, where all of them are free via Office 365 Education.
