Software Discounts

Each year the college purchases a yearly Microsoft Campus Agreement.  This agreement allows us to extend the right to use various Microsoft products for school related purposes at home.  Students and employees can download Office from Outlook.com for free. 

With this agreement, the application will require you to verify your connection with Cornell every 30-60 days. As long as you have an active Cornell College email account you will have full access to the application. Upon graduating from Cornell you will need to acquire a new license code in order to continue using the application.

Currently, this license only extends to Windows Vista and higher and Apple OSX Lion 10.7 and higher. Other operating systems, including tablets and phones, will need to use a personal license of Office. Currently, the online features of Office365 are not available, including Office Web Apps and OneDrive.

1. Using a web browser, navigate to https://login.microsoftonline.com/?whr=cornellcollege.edu
2. Log in using your Cornell username and password
3. In the Language dropdown, select the preferred language
4. In the Version dropdown, select 32-bit or 64-bit depending on your operating system. If you don’t know which you have please do an Internet search to help you determine. Being able to run 64-bit will provide a better user experience. (Sample search: How to tell if my Windows 7 is 32 or 64 bit)
