NOTE: If you are a registered SCU student, then you are allowed to use Microsoft Office 365 while you are a student at Santa Clara University. Thirty days after graduation, your academic version associated with your @SCU email address will be degraded and eventually be deactivated along with SCU/Microsoft Office support. You will then need to purchase your own personal license and/or subscription to continue using Office 365.
