Top Questions

Office 365 is a subscription that comes with premium apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher and Access (Publisher and Access available on PC only). The apps can be installed on multiple devices, including PCs, Macs, iPads, iPhones, Android tablets and Android phones. Office 365 also comes with services like 1 TB of OneDrive storage, 60 Skype minutes per month and Microsoft chat and phone support. With a subscription, you get the latest versions of the apps and automatically receive updates when they happen.


Office 2019 is a one-time purchase that comes with classic apps like Word, Excel and PowerPoint for PC or Mac, and does not include any of the services that come with an Office 365 subscription. One-time purchases don’t have an upgrade option, which means if you plan to upgrade to the next major release, you’ll have to buy it at full price.

First, check to see if you are eligible for Office 365 Education, which is free for qualified teachers and students, and includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Microsoft Teams and other classroom tools from Microsoft. Office 365 Education is not a trial and is available for free to accredited academic institutions who have successfully signed up for this program.

If your school is not eligible for Office 365 Education, you can choose among these other options to find the Office version that fits your budget and needs.

Internet access is required to install and activate Office, but not to use Office applications such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint once you have these fully installed on your computer.


For Office 365 customers, connecting to the internet regularly ensures that you can receive automatic updates and your Office apps are on the latest versions. Internet access will also be needed to manage your Office 365 account – for example, to change payment options or to access documents stored on OneDrive.

Once you have purchased Office, you can install it from the Services & subscriptions section of your Microsoft Account page.

People using Office 365, Office 2019, Office 2016, 2013, 2010 and 2007 as well as Office for Mac 2011 and 2008 will be able to open and view your documents, but those on earlier versions may need to install a compatibility pack.

Documents that you have created or copied from others fully belong to you, and you can save them locally like on your PC or Mac, and/or store them online via a cloud service like OneDrive. Once your subscription expires, your Office apps enter read-only mode, which means you can still view or print documents, but you can’t create or edit them.
