Microsoft Office Items Available to All Customers

Anyone with a NetID can purchase these items, including retirees and alumni. UW-Madison students, faculty, and staff can use Microsoft Office as long as they are enrolled or employed, so they shouldn't purchase these items unless they're about to lose their enrolled or employed status.

The following table lists the most important differences between the items.

Retirees and alumni can access their UW email using Outlook Web App without purchasing anything. However, they can't use any of the other Microsoft Online Apps (Word, Excel, etc) from within their UW account. Those online apps would be available for free from within a separate, non-UW Microsoft account.
