Enrolled Bay College Students and Active Employees can get Microsoft 365 for FREE

  • Microsoft 365 Education for Students is available for free to students who are enrolled at Bay College. Install Office on up to 5 PCs or Macs and on other mobile devices, including Android, iOS, and Windows tablets.
  • Office Apps for mobile devices will be downloaded from your devices' app store. Once the app(s) is downloaded, you'll login with your Bay College username and password.
  • NOTE: OneNote is no longer bundled with the main Office 365 package. The App version of OneNote is included in Windows 10 by default and the Desktop version can be downloaded separately.
  • NOTE: Office 365 is only available while you are an ACTIVE student or employee. Once you are no longer registered for classes you are no longer covered by our license. That's a Microsoft rule not a Bay College rule.
