OverviewIndiana Wesleyan University students are eligible to install the latest version of Microsoft Office (Office365) via their Office 365 subscription. This applies to full-time employees as well.
If you have previous versions or a trial version of MS Office on your computer, you must uninstall them and reboot before installing the free version to avoid potential conflicts.
Begin by signing into the MyIWU Portal
Sign in with your IWU Email Address and Password
In the very top left corner of the portal click on the nine-dot menu button (1) and then click Microsoft 365 (2) from that menu
Select the Install apps in the upper right
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, you'll be asked to sign in. Use your IWU Email Address and your IWU Password to sign in.
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.
