Spelman’s Frequently Asked Questions:

What happens if I leave the College?

If you leave the College, your Office 365 products will deactivate on all devices including your home or personal devices. You may enroll in other available consumer or commercial offers.

How is Office 365 ProPlus different from Office 2013 (for PC) or Office 2011 (for Mac)?

The Office 365 ProPlus applications are provided for installations on your home or personal computers. MIT does not support installations on your home and personal devices. DO NOT INSTALL ON SPELMAN OWNED DEVICES.

Instructions to install** the software, manage licenses, and system requirements are below:

**MIT does not support applications downloaded to personal devices. MIT does offer training and support for accessing the service (ex. user login, password issues, etc.)

Will my Spelman's Office 365 account include OneDrive or OneDrive for Business?

Your Spelman’s Office 365 account will include OneDrive for Business. 

Microsoft offers another storage service called OneDrive. You may already be using OneDrive to store documents and other content in the cloud. This service is different from OneDrive for Business:

  • OneDrive is free online personal storage that you get with either a Microsoft account or Outlook.com. Use OneDrive to save documents, photos, and other files in the cloud, share them with friends, and even collaborate on content. You’re free to decide how you want to use it.
  • OneDrive for Business is online storage intended for business purposes. Your OneDrive for Business is managed by Spelman and lets you share and collaborate on work documents with co-workers.
  • If prompted, always select Business to ensure you are using the correct account for OneDrive.

Can I use Office 365 on my home computer?

Yes, this is what it’s for. Feel free to download and use on up to 5 personally owned devices. MIT manages Office for your work computer so there’s no need to install it there.

When will Office 2013 be installed on my work computer?

MIT plans to update workstations with Office 2016 campus wide, resources and time permitting.
