Download and install the latest version of Microsoft Office (Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, OneNote, Publisher, Access, and OneDrive for Business) through the Office 365 portal as described below.

Review Before You Start

  • You must uninstall older versions of Office (Office 20XX) before you install Office 365.
  • You must be continuously registered and/or employed at Coppin for Office to continue working. Office 365 will stop working when you cease employment and/or are no longer enrolled at Coppin.
  • You will need a reliable internet connection to download installation files.
  • These directions only apply to Office 365 as provided by Coppin. If you purchase your own license for Office 365, we suggest you do not use your Coppin email address for that Office 365 subscription.
