How to Install Office 365 for Free

Last Updated: 7/20/2018 3:42 PM

Every child in the state of WV is issued a Student K12 email account.  Your child receives this email address every year.  At South we do NOT use this email as our main method of communication as the chromebook is logged in with a "boe" gmail account.  However, you have the ability to have 5 (FIVE) FREE downloads of Office 365 from your child's Student K12 email account.  Once you have your child's login credentials (please refer to the letter sent home from Mrs. Sherry at the beginning of the year or contact you need help).  These installs can be done on PC's or Mac's (NOT chromebooks....unnecessary).

Step 1: Click on the accounts avatar (top right) and then click on "My Account."

Step 3: First, please note how many devices your downloads have been used on.  No more than 5.  You can find this below the "Language" box (see pic above).  If you do not recognize a device, click the "Deactivate" link.


Step 4: Click "Install Office" and go through the install process.  Enjoy!
