Indiana Wesleyan University students are eligible to install the latest version of Microsoft Office via their Office 365 subscription.
Please Note: If you have previous versions or a trial version of MS Office on your system, you must uninstall them and reboot before installing the free version to avoid potential conflicts.
1. Login to your student e-mail account from the MyIWU portal.
2. In the very top left corner of your e-mail, click on the nine-dot menu button, and then click "Office 365" from that menu.
3. Select the 'Install Office' link followed by the 'Office 365 apps' selection.
4. Perform any Save, Run, or Allow changes actions necessary when prompted to finish downloading and installing Office.
After installing Office, when opening an Office program for the first time, it may prompt for sign-in before fully being able to use the software. If the prompt is seen the user's full IWU e-mail address and IWU password must be input in order to proceed with using the program.
You will then see an automated download and installation process. It is advisable to wait until the total installation has completed before opening any Office applications, even if Microsoft allows you to do otherwise.
