Between August 9 and August 12, 2019, Information Technology Services (ITS) will upgrade the University’s Microsoft Office 365 license to provide new applications, more security, and better licensing management. The upgrade includes a licensing redistribution that ensures UNCG is in compliance with Microsoft licensing requirements.  

This upgrade:

  • provides qualified University employee accounts with access to a suite of Microsoft Office 365 applications, including both the Office Online web apps and the Office Desktop apps and Power BI Pro;
  • transitions non-qualified University employee accounts to a license that grants access to the Office 365 Online web apps (secondary accounts fall under this classification); and
  • provides students with student versions of both the Office Online web apps and the Office Desktop apps.

Application access and functionality will not be disrupted during the license redistribution.
