OFFICE 365 for PWCS Students and Staff

PWCS students and full-time teachers have free access to powerful learning and creative software to use at home and on the go. Microsoft’s Student Advantage Program permits downloading and use of the entire Office 365 suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Publisher, Skype for Business, Outlook, and Access) on up to five compatible PCs or Macs at no charge.

The free program is open to students in grades 3-12 and all PWCS full-time teachers. Downloaded software can be used by family members too. It includes free automatic updates, and is good for as long as students remain in Prince William County Public Schools.

PWCS students are allowed 5 downloads of Microsoft Office for the devices that they use for school work.  Students will need to log in to their Office 365 account.
