University of Southern Indiana

Microsoft Office @ Home

This software is available to FACULTY & STAFF only.  It is NOT available to Alumni or Retirees.

Current USI STUDENTS should go to for their Microsoft Office download instructions.

DISCLAIMER: The University of Southern Indiana has a Microsoft Campus agreement to lease specific software.  The University is extending to faculty and staff the right to use the software for school-related purposes at home. You do NOT own the license or the CDs: rather you are leasing the license from the University for the term of the agreement. The software will need to be removed from your computer if the Campus Agreement is not renewed or if you leave the University. 

USI Employees have 2 choices for downloading Microsoft office software.  Option one is free.  The second option will cost $9.95. It appears to be a no-brainer, but there are subtle reasons why the second choice might be more appealing.
