What is the difference between my Office 365 account and the “Office 365 University” product?
Your Office 365 account is provided by Gordon College to all students and alumni.  It is directly attached to your normal Gordon College @gordon.edu account.  This account gives you free access to Microsoft web-based tools, such as email, OneDrive, and web browser versions of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.

Office 365 University is a fee-based software subscription between you and Microsoft that allows you to download and install Microsoft applications on multiple devices.  Services purchased via Office 365 University are NOT tied to your Gordon College account.

What happens when I graduate from Gordon College?

  • Your account is re-licensed as an alumni account one semester after your date of graduation.
  • You keep access to your Gordon College email for life.
  • You no longer have full access to Microsoft's Desktop Apps and can purchase an Office 365 product through Microsoft or another online vendor.

If I am about to graduate, how can I prepare regarding Office 365?
You will lose access to OneDrive, your online file storage. To avoid losing your files stored there, download all files and documents onto your personal computer. Files can be re-uploaded to the cloud using a free service like Google Drive if you prefer.

If you have downloaded Microsoft Office onto your personal computer or mobile device through your Gordon College account, your license will no longer be active and you will not be able to use those programs, you can purchase access through Microsoft or another online vendor.
