LSU Health Sciences Center is now licensed for students, faculty and staff to take advantage of Microsoft's Office Pro Plus software which is part of Office 365. Microsoft has made this software available to qualifying education organizations free of charge for students, faculty and staff with userid@LSUHSC.edu email addresses. Once this service is enabled for your account you will receive notification via email and you will be able to use your "userid@LSUHSC.edu" as your username and your LSUHSC password to log in to the Office 365 Portal and download your software. Each Office 365 user can  install up to 5 copies of Office Pro Plus software. This software is for your personal PCs, Macs and portable devices such as smartphones and tablets. This software should not be installed on LSUHSC owned equipment, your local supporter can help install Microsoft Office, features or updates. If you try and install a 6th copy you will have to remove a former install or deactivate a former install from the Office 365 portal.
