Microsoft offers Office 365 Education free to Southwestern Community College students! Simply visit the Microsoft Office 365 Education webpage, and type in your SWCC student email address (for example This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) to confirm your eligibility (note: you must use your SWCC email address; do not use a Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail or other address or it will not work). After you’ve done this, you will receive a confirmation email with directions on how to install the software.   

Need assistance?  Please ensure you've done the following:

  • If you have an existing trial version of Office on your computer, make sure you have uninstalled it first.
  • Microsoft will send a confirmation email to your SWCC account with instructions on setting up a Microsoft account.  Please make sure you follow these instructions carefully, and make note of the username and password you create for Microsoft (SWCC I.T. staff are unable to reset this if you forget what it is).  

If you still need assistance, please visit the information technology department upstairs in the Instructional Center, on the Creston campus.
