As a student or even an employee at Lone Star College, you can download and install Microsoft Office on your own computer. This means you will be able to use the full version of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. In other words, this is not just the online version of Office, known as Office 365.
The quickest way to get Office installed, is to visit: Office.com/GetOffice365 where you will be prompted to login. Be sure to use your LSC student email (e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org) and your LSC student password to login.
Once you are logged in, you will be given the option to install the Office products for your platform, either Windows or Mac OS. The ‘Install Office 2016’ button should be visible at the top right of the page. Please note that if you are using a Google Chromebook, you will not be able to install the full “desktop version” of Office. The mobile version of the Office Suite for Android is available but this should not be confused with the full desktop version for Windows and Mac.
