What is Office 365 ProPlus?
Office 365 ProPlus is a full version of the MS Office Suite. CSU currently offers up to 5 free downloads of the Office product for personal use. This product has the same features and functionality as the standard versions of MS Office, it is not a web-based version of Office. Use this version on documents that are filed on the device or that are attachments within an email.
Office Online is a web-based version of Office, with the same features found on the client, and is used for documents that are filed in the cloud, such as on your OneDrive. This version cannot be used on documents that are filed on the device or that are attachments within an email.
Not all accounts will be eligible for Office 365 ProPlus. To determine if your account is eligible, please review the eligibility list.
Should your account not be eligible for Office 365 ProPlus, you will still have access to Office Online, with the exception of Alumni accounts which have access to email only. Should you need to open a document that is filed on your device, or is an attachment on an email, upload the item into your OneDrive. Once there you can access the document using Office Online.
If your account is ever deactivated, any licenses assigned to your account will also be deactivated. Any item that was created using this license will be available in "read only" mode unless the items are moved to an individually licensed office product.
Like other versions of Office, Office 365 ProPlus is available in a 32-bit and a 64-bit version. It is recommended that the 32-bit version be deployed, even on computers using 64-bit operating systems. If you think you need the 64-bit version, carefully review the information about 64-bit editions of MS Office before you deploy.
When Office 365 ProPlus is deployed, the product is installed on the local device. Office 365 ProPlus is not a web-based version of Office. Microsoft offers online video training for Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access.
