iOS - Microsoft Office Visual Installation Guide

Retired and Emeritus faculty are not eligible for this license. They are still able to purchase Office 365 University provided they do not have an existing Office 365 University account.

  1. To begin, search for the desired app in the app store. In this example, we'll use Microsoft Word. To download the app, click Get and sign in with your Apple ID if prompted.
