Office 365

PCC’s Microsoft Office 365 for Education licensing allows staff, faculty, and students the ability to download desktop versions of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Publisher, and Outlook on their personal, at home computers. This software cannot be installed on PCC-owned devices, as the standard software for these devices is Microsoft Office 2019 (Windows and Mac). Use your MyPCC login credentials to access the software installation files. For MyPCC password resets or account recovery, utilize the links at the bottom of this page.

This software is part of PCC’s “work from home” package, which allows users the ability to install the software on up to five (5) non-PCC devices. Some service offerings that function in Windows may not function similarly, or at all, in the Mac, Tablet, or Chromebook environment.

After installing the O365 package on your workstation, you will also have two pieces of software installed that can be ignored; Microsoft Teams and the Office program. Microsoft Teams is not currently licensed by PCC, so the software will be installed on your workstation but non-functional. Additionally, the software titled “Office” works in conjunction with Microsoft cloud storage, which is not available to PCC at this time.

In order to access the software that is available to you, you will need to search your computer for the title of the software service offering; Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc…
